Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate Solutions 341117






Horse racing, Keeneland style, is here for almost the entire month of October.  Living here in Kentucky, especially the Georgetown/Lexington area, racing is a BIG deal.  The Keeneland Fall Meet is no exception! This event brings in tons of people into it's horse park to see the finest racing around and to enjoy the beautiful central Kentucky fall weather all at the same time.

Especially popular is "Tailgating on the Hill" every Friday and Saturday during racing season. Tailgating is brought to a whole new level each weekend with family friendly activities, food trucks, bluegrass music, a jumbo screen to watch the races on and of course wagering options. 

  Whether you want to participate in tailgating yourself or just to attend and see the show, go here for the rules.
