Backstretch Tours

Join us for an amazing experience of Thoroughbred racing at its finest. Begin your day on the backside with a walk through the barns to see race day preparations underway. Other tour stops include a trackside view of morning workouts, the racing office and restricted Jockey's Quarters.
Backstretch Tours will only be offered on select Wednesdays 9:00-11:00am (2 hour tour). Tickets may be purchased in advance online or at the Keeneland Welcome Center for $60 per person during live racing. The April and October Race Meet package includes the Backstretch Tour, general admission, reserved grandstand seating, a race day program, and food voucher. May through July Backstretch tours are $35 per person for tour only.
Tours will be limited to a maximum of 12 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 wear appropriate shoes and 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, 20 minutes prior to tour time
