Churchill Downs (18 of 27)

Horse racing in Kentucky is rich in history, dating back to 1789 when the first race course was laid out in Lexington. Nearly 100 years later, in 1875, Churchill Downs officially opened and began its tradition as the home of the Kentucky Derby. Photo courtesy of Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau.
