Keeneland will host a number of activities at the iconic race track this summer, led by Breakfast at the Track, a new Keeneland Crafted event for the public to be held Saturday, June 19 and Saturday, July 10 from 8-10:30 a.m. ET.
An outdoor event, Breakfast at the Track will allow guests to experience the beauty of Thoroughbreds working over Keeneland's main track while enjoying an array of unique breakfast offerings created by Keeneland Hospitality, highlighted by Buckles Mini Carrot Cake Jacks and a Doughnut Hole Bar for children, as well as a Breakfast Burrito, Everything Bagel Sandwich and more. This family-friendly outing also features pony rides for kids, Paddock Demonstrations from equine partners and interactive equine-themed experiences for all ages.
Tickets for both the June and July Breakfast at the Track events are now on sale at tickets.Keeneland.com. Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for children and include admission and unlimited breakfast options. Tickets must be purchased in advance of the event.
“Keeneland is excited to open our gates and welcome the community back to the track,” Keeneland President and CEO Shannon Arvin said. “This will be a fantastic summer as we reconnect with family, friends and those special places in our lives. Breakfast at the Track is a fitting way for Keeneland to show its appreciation for our fans and to thank them for their continued support and enthusiasm, particularly during this past year.”
In addition to Breakfast at the Track, the Keeneland Crafted event lineup includes a Belt Making Workshop presented by Keeneland Mercantile to be held Wednesday, June 30 from 6:30-8 p.m.
Guests will enjoy hors d'oeuvres and bourbon cocktails while artisans from Kentucky's fine leather craftsmen Clayton & Crume explain the techniques of creating authentic handmade leather belts–from cutting the strap to beveling, burnishing edges and securing solid brass hardware. Each guest will receive a handcrafted leather belt.
Tickets are $108 per person and go on sale Friday, June 4 at 10 a.m. at keenelandmercantile.com.
