This 2.5 acre park dedicated to the Thoroughbred industry contains seven life-size and lifelike bronze racehorses streaking toward the finish line, while broodmares, foals and the great stallion Lexington 'graze' in a nearby field. Jockey greats Randy Romero, Pat Day, Bill Shoemaker, Jerry Bailey, Don Brumfield, Chris McCarron and Craig Perret are all represented in the race. At the head of the track stands a sculpture of the great race horse Lexington. All sculptures were created by artist Gwen Reardon. 42 plaques honoring historic figures in the industry are placed along winding walkways.
