As a nod to the growing popularity of tailgating on The Hill, Keeneland will expand the traditional Friday/Saturday schedule to now include Sundays during the Spring Meet. No ticket or reservation is required. Fans can watch the racing action via a jumbo TV and place their bets in a wagering tent with live music and food trucks nearby.
Concerning tickets for its upcoming Spring Meet, to be held Apr. 7-28, those will go on sale Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 9 a.m. ET. A variety of options for Dining, Grandstand reserved seating and General Admission are available, and all tickets must be pre-purchased via Keeneland’s Official Online Ticket Office.
“Thanks to our equine community, including our fans, Keeneland enjoyed a historic racing year in 2022, and we are excited to continue to build on that momentum,” Keeneland President and CEO Shannon Arvin said. “The Keeneland team is busy finalizing plans for the spring, and we can’t wait to welcome guests in just a few short weeks for what we know will be a terrific racing season.”
The 15-day Spring Meet offers racing Wednesdays through Sundays, except Easter Sunday, Apr. 9. Post time is 1 p.m. daily.
