Keeneland hosts Oaks and Derby outings

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Louisville isn't the only place you can go to experience the Derby and the Oaks this weekend. Keeneland also has their services available, and quite a few of them.

Just a few hours in to the start of Oaks and Derby weekend, the betting windows saw ample action.
Everyone sitting in the Paddock seemed to take in the comfort of a little extra elbow room that Keeneland has to offer right now, and the beautiful weather.

But don't let the serene scene fool you. A Keeneland spokesperson says they anticipate thousands will turn out between today and tomorrow to take advantage of the live race simulcasting, live music, and numerous concessions for patrons to enjoy.

"There'll be plenty of places for people to go, get out of the weather if it does turn inclement. And we'll have tons of tvs, we'll be showing all of the racing on the LED board out in the infield. So you'll have plenty of spots that you can go," said Keeneland spokeswoman Amy Gregory.

If you're the betting type, in addition to wagering inside Keeneland, you can take advantage of their drive-thru option, or at Red Mile, the Kentucky Horse Park, and the Thoroughbred Center.
