Horsing around in Kentucky

Posted on Sunday, May 06, 2012
LEXINGTON, Ky. — If you’re a horse enthusiast, sooner or later you’re going to have to make the pilgrimage to Kentucky. And if — like me — it’s your daughters who are the enthusiasts, then the odds are 2-1 it’s going to be sooner. So when spring break arrived last year and my wife couldn’t take any time off, I loaded my twin daughters into the car for the nine-hour drive west from Philadelphia to Lexington, the self-proclaimed (not that anyone disputes it) “Horse Capital of the World.” My only concern: Would there be enough to do there and in nearby Louisville to keep two 11-year-olds busy for four days? I needn’t have worried.
