Photo Treasures from the Keeneland Library showcases a representative sample of the newly organized and expanding digitized collections of photographs and images from the Keeneland Library Collections. Featured photographers include Charles Christian Cook, Bernard Stanley Morgan, Joel Clyne “Skeets” Meadors, and Robert Lee McClure. Images from the New York Sportsman, the Thoroughbred Times, and Keeneland Library photographic albums are also exhibited.
The highlighted collection items cover a broad variety of image subjects. From historic racehorses to jockeys, and from Thoroughbred owners to rare glimpses of early 20th century race tracks, we are pleased to share our growing digitized photographic treasures. Check back to engage with new additions, as we will continue to add items as they become available.
