Day at the Races

Keeneland Race Course

Our annual “Keeneland Day at the Races” was launched in 1983 as a fundraiser to finance the groundbreaking of RMHC of the Bluegrass.

Held in the Keeneland Room, guests enjoy one of the most stunning views of the race track. Located on the 5th floor and complete with a private patio, this room is a fit for a queen – literally 😉

Complemented by great food and even better company, this is a great event to see and be seen while partaking in one of Lexington’s favorite past times: A Day at the Races!
