Central Kentucky is home to many magnificent horses and their farms. Although there are numerous places to witness these beautiful animals, including Keeneland, Churchill Downs, Pimlico, and Belmont, their history often gets overwhelmed by their statistics. In the Images of America series, Kentucky's Famous Racehorses goes beyond the numbers and provides insight into the character of these beloved creatures by featuring stories straight from those closest to the horses--the grooms. Patricia L. Thompson was born in Louisville and moved to Lexington as a child. After several moves, she and her husband returned to Lexington with their three children, and horses remain a part of their lives.
