It was a perfect October day for the opening of Keeneland's cherished fall race meet, with sunny skies and no shortage of great racing and good times. The day dawned bright and beautiful and the crowd continued to grow throughout the afternoon.

America's Best Racing's Penelope Miller was in Lexington, Ky., to witness the revelry firsthand, and here she shares some scenes of one of the most treasured traditions of the Bluegrass: autumn racing at Keeneland. Enjoy the slideshow below.
