Toured the morning of Kentucky Derby year of Covid

Ernie was very comfortable and very much in his environment. An environment he welcomed us in like we were his neighbors. The visit to the Keeneland race course early in the morning was awesome. The horses were incredibly fast running in pairs during workouts. He answered our questions with ease and humor. He is also very humble as later research shows he was a jockey for 10 years and a very successful trainer with quite a few winners in his career. We really enjoyed the tour. Thanks Ernie

Ernie was our tour guide and was a previous jockey and knew many of the horse riders when we were at the Keeneland race track, so he had inside information. It was a great tour! Thanks, Ernie!

Our horse farm tour was the highlight of our trip. Our tour guide Ruth was awesome. She shared interesting fact after interesting fact. Took your time, in fact our tour was actually a 4 hour tour instead of 3. Keeneland was great, the training area was great and the visit to the Stallion barn amazing. Highly recommend this tour. Ask for RUTH

Our drivers PA system was not working and she did not have it replaced. Hence people behind the driver could not hear trying ti explain tour. She was an older lady and tho she tried to speak through out the tour, she did not have a strong enough voice to complete her job. She should have been able to get a replacement for her system so everyone in the van could have heard all about the farms.

This was a really wonserful experience made even more remarkable by having a retired jockey and trainer as your guide. Ernie provided insight that could only be provided by someone with inside experience. Keenland was amazing and the tour of McPeek barns and the chance to interact with mates and their newly born foals was very special.
