It is the only racecourse in the world declared a “monument of national interest.” In addition to the horse racing, you can also see the world’s largest equestrian statue, inspired by the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci, cast in America 500 years after Leonardo da Vinci’s ambitious plans to make it. We can take you on a tour to see this superb sculpture and learn the incredible story behind it.
