LEXINGTON, Ky. — Keeneland announced on Wednesday that it plans to allow a limited number of fans for the Spring Meet held from April 2-23.

The tickets will have pre-sold ticket packages including dining, grandstand reserved seating and general admission. The track will announce details on how to purchase tickets and the pricing on March 1. If you are interested, Keeneland encourages fans to sign up for ticket alerts at keeneland.com/newsletter.

“The enthusiasm and loyalty of our fans are what make Keeneland so special,” Keeneland President and CEO Shannon Arvin said. “We have missed their presence on race days and we are excited to welcome them, albeit in limited number, back to Keeneland. We appreciate the support of the Central Kentucky community this past year, and we hope this step is the first toward somewhat normal operations in the fall.

“While our team has worked diligently on a plan for expanded attendance this spring, the safety of our guests and employees remains our top priority,” Arvin added. “As such, our COVID-19 protocols remain in place and will be strictly enforced during the Spring Meet.”

The COVID-19 pandemic forced Keeneland to cancel the 2020 Spring Meet and hold an unprecedented five-day Summer Meet in July. The 2020 Summer and Fall Meets and Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Keeneland were closed to fans.
