Now an icon of the Bluegrass region, Lexington, the Thoroughbred, reigned supreme as 16-time leading sire between 1861 and 1878. Among the first inductees into the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame in 1955, Lexington's fame and importance continue today with his likeness gracing the top of Pimlico's Woodlawn Vase. Additionally, both Belmont Park and Keeneland feature races named in his honor.
