KentuckyOne Health Breeders' Cup Festival Week Horse Farm Tour Tickets Now Available
Lexington, KY - Tickets are now available for Horse Farm Tours during the KentuckyOne Health Breeders' Cup Festival Week. These tours offer a rare "behind the scenes" look at Kentucky's iconic stud operations and nurseries, world-renowned veterinary clinics, and more. Attendees will hear the stories of Breeders' Cup champions, and meet the sires, dams, sisters and brothers of this year's Breeders' Cup runners - and maybe the champions themselves. KentuckyOne Health Breeders' Cup Festival Week Horse Farm Tours are supported by promotional partners WKYT and Cumulus Media.
"The Thoroughbred farms of Central Kentucky are one of the greatest assets we have, and we're thrilled to be able to share them with our guests and community during the KentuckyOne Health Breeders' Cup Festival Week," said Laura Prewitt, Executive Director of the Breeders' Cup Festival. "This week is going to be full of great events for our community and visitors."

Various locations and pairings are available Sunday October 25 in the afternoon and Monday, October 26 - Wednesday, October 28 during the morning and afternoon. Approximately 3,000 experiences are available.

Bell, Jr. with Mill Ridge Farm and Nicoma Bloodstock. "We dream of the chance to compete in the Breeders' Cup, and look forward to sharing our passion for these amazing athletes."
