Kentucky Derby - A Little History

Did you know that races started in Kentucky as early as 1783 in downtown Louisville?  Kentucky Derby tradition started on May 17, 1875 when the track officially opened. Our guests, of course, have not been attending this event that long but joined us when we first opened the Bluegrass Country Estate Bed and Breakfast in 2008.  History of the Derby and Churchill Downs is uniquely depicted at the Kentucky Derby Museum.  Make sure you visit while at the Derby.

There is something about Derby that is like no other event and we make sure that the celebration is complete with a stay on a beautiful horse estate!  We would love to have you stay with us.
