Kentucky is famous for two things, bourbon and horses. This exclusive Mint Julep Tour will bring you to two of Kentucky’s most famous horse locations, the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY and Coolmore Farms in Versailles, KY, home of the finest stallions in North America including Triple Crown Winner American Pharoah.
You will visit the Kentucky Derby Museum for two floors of interactive exhibits, a newly updated 360° immersive sound & visual experience “The Greatest Race,” Historic Walking Tour of Churchill Downs, and a stop in the The Finish Line Gift Shop featuring American Pharoah merchandise. Then it’s off to Coolmore’s Ashford Stud to see their iconic stallion barns, which are home to Grand Slam Champion American Pharoah along with the likes of three-time champion sire Giant’s Causeway, and Kentucky Derby winners Fusaichi Pegasus and Thunder Gulch.
