Louisville is the proud home of the Kentucky Derby and Churchill Downs. Churchill Downs opened in 1875 and began its tradition as home of the Derby. In nearby Lexington (79 miles), the first horse race course was laid out in 1789. The name “Thoroughbreds” pays homage to the centuries-old tradition of horse racing throughout the state of Kentucky.
In addition to Lexington, Indianapolis, Indiana, is less than two hours away (114 miles) from Louisville.
