combines elegance and comfort with the equine history and rustic
Kentucky feel that make Keeneland so unique. The Keene Barn
reception area was once a working horse barn; the stone facade
and sweeping rafters are a nod to its past life.
Tickets go on sale June 1,
with special Lucky Dog pricing for through June 15. Reserve a
table for your party or purchase tickets individually.
