Keeneland's Fall Meet Kicks Off Today

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) - Each October, Keeneland's signature Fall Stars Weekend is an exciting kickoff to the Fall Meet.

Nine graded stakes are offered opening weekend, including these Grade 1 events: Darley Alcibiades, $1 million Shadwell Turf Mile, Claiborne Breeders' Futurity, First Lady and Juddmonte Spinster.

Fans will see many Breeders' Cup-bound stars prep at Keeneland as a prelude to the World Championships.

And if you aren't there to bet, you can help yourself to some of Keeneland's signature bread pudding or burgoo.

If you are heading to the track, give yourself plenty of time to navigate Versailles Road.

When the event started Friday, many noticed the increase in security, but after the tragic attack in Las Vegas, attendees said the increase made them feel safer.

Keeneland patron Phil Wisdon told LEX 18 that he was asked to lift up his shirt and show them around his belt, but that it was only a minor inconvenience and he had no problem with doing so. 

Racing continues Saturday and Sunday before resuming again next Wednesday.
