Lexington, Kentucky: Horse Cemetery

Most horses don't get buried in cemeteries, but winners of the Triple Crown and the Kentucky Derby do. This small graveyard -- or at least its tombstones -- was moved when a Walmart was built on its original spot.

Grey Lag Way, Lexington, KY
I-75 exit 110 onto US Hwy 60/Winchester Rd. Drive west only a few hundred feet. At the first stoplight, turn left onto Elkhorn Rd, then keep bearing right onto Grey Lag Way (which isn't marked). Follow along the parking lots, past the Lowes. When you see the Wal-Mart, park as far away as you can, just off Grey Lag Way. Across the road you'll see a sidewalk; it leads into the trees and the cemetery.

The sidewalk that leads to it is across street from a bus stop in the Walmart parking lot. It's a very pretty place.
