Hats Off to Keeneland's Fall Meet!

Keeneland’s 2019 Fall Meet is here!

Through October 26th, Keeneland will be open to the public at 11 AM daily with the first post time at 1:05 PM. Whether you’re heading down on a party bus or just going with your family, Keeneland is a great way to celebrate Kentucky’s horse racing history in a fun, affordable way.

There are tons of activities, and a few new features this year:

  • The new Saddling Paddock Chalet, which provides you with a unique view overlooking the Saddling Paddock, as well as a premium buffet.
  • The Bourbon Bar, next to the Saddling Paddock, which offers premium bourbons including the Keeneland Private Select from Maker’s Mark and Blanton’s Single Barrel Select for Keeneland
  • Self-Servicing waging machines will allow you to donate a portion or all of your winnings to the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, which helps to take care of retired racehorses

Fall Meet will have some special events as well:

  • The Hill, which is Keeneland’s official tailgate! There’s live music, food trucks, a shuttle to the Grandstand, a jumbo screen to watch races or football, and on Saturdays, live bluegrass.
  • Saturday mornings feature Sunrise Trackside, which is breakfast beginning at 7 AM, children’s activities in the Kid’s Club Corner, free guided tours of the grounds, and equine-related demonstrations at the Paddock.
  • A variety of guided tours, which can be purchased at Keeneland.com

If you’re there to bet on the horses, there are lots of opportunities to do so. Every Friday guarantees $200,000 on the Friday Pick Four on the first three Fridays of the meet, and $300,000-guaranteed All-Stakes Pick Five. Every day, Keeneland offers a Pick Six and early/late Pick Fours and Pick Fives. BETologists are available each race day to answer your wagering questions, and handicappers of all levels can play the WINS-Day challenge every Wednesday!

So put on your favorite hat, dress up, and take a day at the Races at Keeneland this fall.
