For guests interested in learning the history of Keeneland and an overview of operations for both racing and sales, guided walking tours are available. This outside walking tour with an experienced Tour Guide takes guests through the Keeneland Paddock and Grandstand, grounds, and when available, to the world-renowned Sales Pavilion. Following the track side tour, fans are invited to visit the Keeneland Library, one of the world's largest repositories of information related to the Thoroughbred.
Tickets may be purchased in advance online or at the Keeneland Welcome Center for $15 per person; children 12 and under are free. Tours will be limited to 25 people, so visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance. Our tour lasts for one hour and largely takes place outside – rain or shine. For your comfort, we ask that you dress for the weather and wear appropriate shoes for walking/standing/climbing stairs.
