Lexington, Kentucky—the Horse Capital of the World

Lexington is the second largest city in Kentucky and the hearth of the state’s Bluegrass Region, the area that is renowned for its fertile soil, lush grassland and scenic beauty. With a population of 310,797 residents, it is the 61st largest city in the United States. Founded in 1775 by William McConnell as a temporary campsite and officially incorporated seven years later, it was not until 1792 that Lexington became part of Kentucky, the newly established state. By 1820, Lexington has already become one of the largest and most prosperous towns west of the Appalachian Mountains. Because of its cultured lifestyle, Lexington soon gained the nickname “Athens of the West.” The flattering epithet was taken from a poem written by Josiah Espy (“But Lexington will ever be, The Loveliest and the Best; A Paradise thou’rt still to me, Sweet Athens of the West”).

Lexington is most famously known for its horses and is commonly referred to as the “Horse Capital of the World.” Because the limestone soils of the Inner Bluegrass Region are rich with calcium, horses raised on its grass have stronger bones and endurance, which plays a major role in breeding of racing champions. With more than 450 thoroughbred horse farms, Lexington has the greatest concentration of such equestrian facilities in the world. A magnet for international clientele, as well as tourists, the horse industry vastly contributes to Lexington’s local economy. Attracting horse-lovers, fans and gamblers from around the globe, the races at the Keeneland course and the Red Mile harness track are Lexington’s most significant claim to fame.

Lexington prides itself on being one of the leading American cities in economic growth. With an unemployment rate of just 3.2% (which is lower than in many cities of similar size) and predicted ten-year job growth of 32.7%, Lexington’s economy is expanding at a rapid pace. The list of major corporations that have located its headquarters or facilities in Lexington includes the tech giant Lexmark—the city’s largest private employer—as well as Toyota’s multi-million dollar assembly plant. In addition to cars and printers, agriculture also plays an important role in Lexington’s local economy, tobacco, corn, soybeans, wheat, barley and beef cattle being largely produced. Smaller businesses have also found the area attractive. Forbes magazine has recently named Lexington as the 4th best city for business and careers, while Entrepreneur magazine recognized it as one of the top five cities in the southeast for small-business start-ups.

Among Lexington’s population over the age of twenty five, 22.86% hold a 4-year college degree, 10.29% hold a master’s degree and 3.02% hold a doctorate degree. Among US cities over 250,000 residents, Lexington ranks 10th in terms of college education rate; when it comes to literacy, the city is ranked 13th in the United States. In addition to being the largest and most important educational institutions in Lexington, the Transylvania University and the University of Kentucky are also one of the area’s major employers.
