If you love horses, you’ll really love Keeneland.

We offer live racing for three weeks in April and three weeks in October, and we welcome visitors any time of the year. If you’d like to spend a morning or an afternoon at picturesque Keeneland, we have some great ideas about making the most of your visit with these suggested itineraries.

Self-Guided Tours

Keeneland's Paddock is one of the most beautiful places you will find in Central Kentucky—or anywhere, for that matter. In the mornings, its beauty and serenity are the perfect match for the new colt or filly who must be "schooled" in the Paddock as part of a Thoroughbred's education. Every April and October, it is the hub of activity—alive with grooms, owners, trainers, jockeys and fans awaiting breathlessly as last-minute instructions are dispensed and fans get one last look at the magnificent horses before they run the race of their lives.
