Backstretch Tour

Keeneland Tours, Lexington, KY

Sold Out / Not Available

Available May through June

Begin your day on the backside with a walk through the barns to witness the various activities that take place every morning- from a Thoroughbred getting new shoes, or a bath, or being hot-walked after the morning work-out. Other tour stops include a visit to both the main track and training track for morning workouts, the racing office and Sales Pavilion.

Backstretch Tours are offered on select Wednesdays and are best suited for ages 13+. Tickets may be purchased in advance online or at the Keeneland Welcome Center for $35 per person during live racing.

Tours will be limited to a maximum of 15 people, so visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance online.

The tour itself lasts for two hours and largely takes place outside, rain or shine. For your comfort we ask that you dress for the weather.

Please check in at the Welcome Center, located adjacent to the Grandstand South entrance located at the top of parking row 7, at least 20 minutes prior to tour time of 8:30a.m.
