To celebrate its 75th anniversary, Keeneland has published a 231-page hard cover book that presents fresh insights and historical details that chronicle the first 75 years of this Kentucky icon. Keeneland: A Thoroughbred Legacy includes forewords by Keeneland President Nick Nicholson and past presidents William Greely and James Bassett III, as well as 12 chapters by such local authors as Sue Wylie and Maryjean Wall. How often is an entity created that succeeds beyond the wildest imaginings of it's creators? Furthermore, an entity that comes to define a region and an industry, created during the Great Depression yet with a purposeful eye toward the future? The Keeneland Association, born 1936 through the talent and dedication of a small group of strong minded men, became such an entity. Now internationally know as the leader of Thoroughbred auction sales and beloved as a National Historic Landmark racecourse, Keeneland beat the odds to become an enduring presence in the heart of Kentucky's Bluegrass region. Keeneland: A Thoroughbred Legacy presents fresh insights and historical details that chronicle the first seventy-five years of this Kentucky icon.
