Tradition, beauty, and world-class Thoroughbreds make Keeneland racing a spectacle to behold. For more than eight decades, the best horses, owners, jockeys and trainers have converged at Keeneland each April and October to compete in “racing as it was meant to be.”
The 17-day Fall Meet offers a record $6 million in stakes purses and an expanded stakes schedule of 22 races. The season kicks off Oct. 8-10 with Keeneland’s signature Fall Stars Weekend, and the meet features 10 Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” races. Two new 6-furlong stakes for 2-year-olds, the Bowman Mill and the Myrtlewood for fillies, and six multiple stakes race days, highlight the Fall Meet.
The Keeneland Fall Meet takes place October 8-30, with no racing on Mondays or Tuesdays. Gates Open at 11 a.m. First post at 1:05 p.m.
