Don’t miss out on the experience of Derby Week! Even though spectators will not be allowed and many will not be traveling to Lexington for this year’s Derby, you can still experience some of the magic of the Horse Capital of the World through these virtual tours.
It’s officially 2020 Kentucky Derby Week, 2.0! In May we were able to celebrate #DerbyatHome, but now we’re excited that the run for the roses is officially here. This year will be different in so many ways, but there’s one thing that hasn’t changed: for many of the Kentucky Derby hopefuls, their career started in Horse Country. From breeding and foaling to training, sales and then second careers, there is a reason that Lexington is known as the Horse Capital of the World.
For those Thoroughbred fans who are missing physically visiting Horse Country and enjoying the farm tours that accompany it, Horse Country Kentucky has partnered with the Kentucky Derby to offer virtual content at Horse Country locations.
Below is the so you can mark your calendar and tune in to visit some of the top Thoroughbred operations in the world!
