It all began on October 15, 1936, when Keeneland hosted its first day of live Thoroughbred racing.
Located in the heart of Kentucky's beloved bluegrass region, Keeneland has played a vital role throughout the history of Thoroughbred racing and breeding.
From Keeneland's start-up in 1936, the founders intended it to be a special place. The track has been a spot for families to gather, horses to race and bets to be won.
Each April and October, the country’s best Thoroughbred trainers, owners and jockeys gather at Keeneland to compete for some of America’s richest purse money.
