Lexington Things to Do: 99 reviews and 233 photos

This park is a tribute to the thoroughbred race horse, and features thirteen sculptures. Seven life size bronze race horses and jockeys run for the finish line. There is also a small bronze statue of "Lexington", the famous 19th century racehorse. In the spring-late fall you can see fountains everywhere which adds to the beauty of the park. Throughout the park is a paved walkway lined with bronze plaques memorializing notable people in the horse industry. Some notable plaques include Bing Crosby, Queen Elizabeth II, Henry Clay, and many more.
