Make-A-Wish, Keeneland to host 'Make-A-Wish Day'

You are here

Make-A-Wish® announced today that tickets are now on sale for Make-A-Wish® Day at Keeneland on Wednesday, October 10, 2012.

Since 2008, the Thoroughbred industry and Keeneland have teamed up to grant the wishes of nine Kentucky children battling life-threatening medical conditions each year by hosting Make-A-Wish® Day at Keeneland. As guests of honor, the Wish Families enjoy a VIP afternoon at Keeneland highlighted by lunch and a behind-the-scenes tour of the track. Wish Families meet the Keeneland jockeys in the paddock, watch a race from the winner’s circle and, at the end of each race, the Wish Children present the trophy for the race named after the sponsoring farms.

The Wishing at the Races ticket package is $25 and includes one general admission ticket, reserved seating in the Grandstand, a Keeneland program, Thornton’s free fountain drink coupon and a limited edition T-shirt designed by a past Keeneland Kid. A multi-ticket package is available for $100 and includes five general admission tickets, reserved seats in the Grandstand, Keeneland programs, Thornton’s free fountain drink coupons and limited edition T-shirts. Packages are not tax-deductible.

Vouchers for both ticket packages can be purchased online at or by calling (502) 272-4375.
