Fall Meet Parking Changes
Keeneland has made several alterations to parking and traffic flow for the Fall Meet in order to accommodate the unique trackside venues constructed for the Breeders’ Cup. Clubhouse parking and the area known as the Louisville Lot, both located near the final turn, are closed. Tailgaters are encouraged to join the fun on The Hill, which offers all the racing action via a jumbo screen, plus food trucks, live music and mutuel machines.
To facilitate traffic flow, Keeneland will make five gates around the track’s perimeter available to fans entering and exiting the grounds. In addition to Gates 1 and 2 off Versailles Road and Gate 3 off Rice Road, there are two new entrances, Gates 4 and 5, located on Van Meter Road, that will be open for vehicular traffic. Additional shuttle stops will be available near Gates 4 and 5 as well as The Hill to take fans to the Grandstand.
