Sports / Equine Events

Sports are alive and well in the Horse Capital of the World 
Everyone knows the Bluegrass is famous for horse racing, but there are so many ways to satisfy your sports cravings while in the region. Home to the University of Kentucky, collegiate football and basketball attract nationwide attention. April through September you can experience America's favorite pastime with the Lexington Legends baseball team at Whitaker Bank Ballpark. Lexington has women's rugby, roller derby, disc golf, the Bluegrass State Games and so many other indoor & outdoor activities! Amateur or professional, Lexington provides something to enjoy throughout the year in Central Kentucky!

Athletics is a powerful vehicle through which to promote civic pride, sportsmanship, health and vitality. Contact John Pohl, (859) 233-1221 extension 7716, Director of Sports and Equine Sales at VisitLEX, for information about the extraordinary facilities available in Lexington.
