Backstretch Tours

Join us for an all-day experience of Thoroughbred racing at its finest. Begin your day on the backside with a walk through the barns to see raceday preparations underway. Other tour stops include a trackside view of morning workouts, the racing office and restricted Jockey's Quarters.

Following the tour, guests will meet a Keeneland BETologist to learn more about how to place a bet and read a program, then enjoy the thrill of live Thoroughbred racing from the comfort of the Keeneland grandstand.

Backstretch Tours will only be offered on Wednesdays during live racing. Tickets may be purchased in advance online or at the Keeneland Welcome Center for $60 per person. The package includes the Backstretch Tour, reserved grandstand seating, a race day program, and food voucher.

Tours will be limited to a maximum of 14 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, by 8:50 AM.
