Kentucky’s Bluegrass region is known as the Horse Capital of the World. It is also a uniquely beautiful area that welcomes thousands of visitors each year, drawn by the beautiful and historic horse farms that gave birth to some of the world’s finest horses. This book tells the stories of these farms (such as Calumet, Elmendorf, and Three Chimneys) and the horses they have produced horses such as John Henry, Seattle Slew, and Man o’ War. It also includes a visitor’s guide to all things equine – including Keeneland racetrack, the Thoroughbred Center, rehab facilities, and a school for jockey wannabes. There’s even a section on equine terminology and an area map for self-guided tours. The perfect book for those contemplating a trip to the Bluegrass.
