      Keeneland, Old Friends & Castle Royal Excursion @ The Kentucky Castle

      You're invited to a Kentucky royal excursion experience! Join a small group of guests as we board a luxury shuttle and leave at 9a for a guided tour of Keeneland. A celebrated national landmark with timeless beauty, guests are provided with a unique look at Thoroughbred Racing with morning workouts!  At 10a, the shuttle takes guests to Old Friends Farm, a Thoroughbred Retirement Facility in Georgetown, KY that specializes in equine aftercare.

Experience a tour led by Michael Blowen, meet the beloved equine residents and delight in their stories! The horses love having visitors!  At 11:15a enjoy the scenic drive as the shuttle leaves to bring guests back to The Kentucky Castle for a guided Castle tour, followed by a seasonal lunch in the Grand Ballroom!
