Ashland is the name of the plantation of the 19th-century Kentucky statesman Henry Clay,[2] located in Lexington, Kentucky, in the central Bluegrass region of the state. Long operated as a forced-labor farm whose owners enslaved Black people, it is a registered National Historic Landmark.[2] The Ashland Stakes, a Thoroughbred horse race at Keeneland Race Course that has run annually since the race course first opened in 1936, was named for the historically important estate.
