The Keeneland Racetrack is a horse track that was founded in 1936. Thoroughbred races are held there during the months of April and October each year. The number of races varies, but there are enough options available. This ensures you can catch the action during your vacation in Lexington. You should always arrive at Keeneland Racetrack early in the day. This way, you can eat breakfast in the Equestrian Dining Room.
Family Vacation in Lexington? Catch the Action at the Keeneland Racetrack
Take a Tour of the Keeneland Racetrack
While you can easily visit this horse track to watch the races, I recommend taking a tour after your breakfast. The Morning Works Tours offer a behind-the-scenes look at horse racing. Your guide will take you to where the horses work out. From there, you will see the Keeneland Paddock, Grandstand, and the historic grounds.
Once your hour-long tour is over, you can get ready for the rest of your day. If there are races at Keeneland Race Track that day, you can find the perfect spot to sit. This could be out on the grounds or within the clubhouse.
Catch the Races at the Keeneland Racetrack
If you think that your kids will be bored, I can guarantee they won’t! Kids of all ages love to watch the horses before and during the races. Plus, since you can have picnic lunches, they can eat all day long. I do recommend signing your kids up for the Keeneland Kids Club before your arrival. Kids age twelve and under receive many perks from this club, and it’s free!
Watching horses race is not something you can do during every family vacation. So, add this amazing experience to your family vacation in Lexington today! I can help you with all the planning. All you need to do is enjoy yourself as you are making memories to last a lifetime.
