Tickets available for Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Keeneland Nov. 4-5
Tickets for Keeneland’s 2022 Fall Meet, to be held Oct. 7-29, will go on sale to the public beginning at 9 a.m. ET tomorrow, Tuesday, Aug. 16. Similar to previous meets, all General Admission, Grandstand and Dining tickets must be pre-purchased online through Keeneland’s Official Online Ticket Office at tickets.Keeneland.com or on the Keeneland Race Day app.
The Fall Meet promises to be an exceptional one as Keeneland prepares to host the Breeders’ Cup World Championships for the third time on Nov. 4-5. Twenty-two stakes worth a record $8.9 million will be featured during the 17-day Fall Meet, with 11 stakes – nine of which are “Win and You’re In” events as part of the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series Presented by America’s Best Racing – held during Keeneland’s opening three-day Fall Stars Weekend.
To further heighten the Fall Meet fun, Keeneland will offer seating in two venues constructed for the Breeders’ Cup – the Saddling Paddock Chalet and Loge Boxes on the track apron – for sale to the public.
“Anticipation is running high for the Fall Meet, and the Keeneland team is working hard to provide our fans and horsemen with some truly exceptional experiences,” Keeneland President and CEO Shannon Arvin said. “Keeneland will be the focus of the Thoroughbred world as we welcome international visitors and participants for our Fall Meet and Breeders’ Cup, which are bookended by the September Yearling and November Breeding Stock Sales. The atmosphere at Keeneland will be electric this fall.”
