    Default Rolex Keeneland Tour 7am Friday 4/26

    Friday 4/26 at 7am. Tour from 7-8 will finish in the track kitchen and allow time for breakfast before heading to the first ride at the KHP at 10am. The tour is free (tips are certainly appreciated though!), be prepared to walk A LOT, dress warmly, and wear shoes that you are comfortable getting dirty. My cell is 615 969 8994. RSVPing is fine but not required. Call/text if you get lost, are running late, or have any questions.

    Refer to map above. Red circle indicates gate to enter, blue circle indicates parking area and grandstand entry point. We will meet by south gate (marked by blue circle). Parking is free and unrestricted at that hour of morning. I look forward to seeing and meeting you all!

    I (sadly) missed it last year. What are the details? Would love an inside peak this year!

    We went last year. It was chilly, but worth every shivering moment! Highly recommend going if you can make it!!

    Thanks olympicdreams for offering to chaperone again this year.

    Giving this a bump. WELL WORTH IT. Wish my budget this year allowed me to go. Alas, yet another root canal wiped out the Rolex ticket fund....

    Oh, that sounds more fun than Rolex.

    I could do this, I think. If I can ever get out of Laramie. I'm en route to Nashville but now stranded in WY in a snow/windstorm.

    We would definitely be interested -- we'll be there on Thursday for the races, but could possibly do another day, depending on the time. Thanks!

    I am driving down from Chicagoland Thursday night/Fri AM. My target arrival time will now be 6AM. Is there a spot that we should meet? This sounds like such a neat opportunity! Thank you for offering to be our guide!

    I would love to go, but after getting up at 4:00 am on Thursday to drive to KY, I don't know if I will have the energy to be at Keenelnad at 6:00 am Friday, and then make it through the whole day at Rolex that day. But I am going to try! Where at Keeneland will the group be meeting?
