Make a Wish Day at Keeneland

This is the 10th anniversary of Make-A-Wish Day® at Keeneland, the culmination of a rewarding experience for a special group of deserving children.

Local Thoroughbred farms and organizations team up with Keeneland to grant wishes for many deserving children. At Keeneland, the children and their families will be treated to a VIP experience, complete with presenting a trophy after each of the day's 10 races, meeting jockeys and experiencing all the excitement of a day at the races.

Fans are encouraged to cheer on these children and support Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana. They will have the opportunity to help make even more wishes come true by placing a donation into the “Wishing Well” near the Keeneland Paddock. 

The participating farms and organizations are:

  • Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital
  • Godolphin
  • Lane's End
  • Flaxman Holdings
  • Hagyard
  • Shadwell
  • Shawnee Farm
  • Ashford 
  • Gainesway
