We made our way to Lexington via Frankfort. In Frankfort, we went to the Buffalo Trace distillery which is much larger than Maker’s Mark. We got to try something that is currently only available in Kentucky – Buffalo Trace Bourbon Cream. It is similar to Bailey’s Irish Creme, but much better. If you ever see this in stores, we recommend that you buy it. We also went to a restaurant that we saw on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives – Wallace Station. We would NEVER have found it without it being featured on this show. The food was very good. Once we got to Lexington, we visited the University of Kentucky to get Don a t-shirt (being a Gamecock fan and growing up in Indiana, Leslie could not bring herself to buy one). We also went to the distillery for Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, which is a beer that they make and then store in used bourbon barrels for six weeks. It is quite interesting. We also went to the Kentucky Horse Park. Leslie got to pet horses, so she was happy. They have an amazing museum on horses and some very good horse shows. We also drove around and looked at the horse farms. There were all kinds of mares and foals in the pastures. We found the Cobra farm (gate picture below), which is where Seattle Slew was born.
