As you drive along, you will pass the many Thoroughbred farms which make Kentucky famous. Breeding, racing and selling Thoroughbreds is a multibillion dollar industry here and Kentucky produces more Thoroughbred foals than any other state in the Nation. Along the drive, you may also pass famous locust trees, osage orange trees, dogwoods and more. There will be old limestone rock walls and many buildings on the National Historic Register.
