Thoroughbred Park

Thoroughbred Park is located at the edge of downtown Lexington, Kentucky. The park takes up 2.5 acres. The park is a tribute to the Thoroughbred racehorse and the jockeys who rode them.

The park contains life-size bronze figures of the seven greatest thoroughbreds along with the seven greatest jockeys: Randy Romero, Pat Day, Bill Shoemaker, Jerry Bailey, Don Brumfield, Chris McCarron and Craig Perret streaking toward the finish line. The park also contains sculptures of brood mares and fouls scattered throughout the park.
