The Perfect Day

It doesn’t matter if you like racing.

In fact, 90% of our customers don’t even watch

They drink.

They bet.

They tailgate and horse around.

Tailgating (High Class Tailgating) is the order of the day.

Did you know that if you go to Keeneland Race Track in a party bus, they let you park right up front in Row 1 with all the other party buses?

Then, that entire area is roped off, and it becomes one giant tailgate.

90% of Our Customers Go for the Tailgating

But we’ve heard there’s also racing inside.

Your Clients Will Be Impressed

Take your clients or employees down to Keeneland in a party bus.  They’ll love you for it!

Take Keeneland to the Next Level

Nothing is worse than driving home after a hard days night at Keeneland.  Let us take care of that.

You Drink.  We Drive.

Keeneland Questions

What is Keeneland and
how does it work?

 

What is Keeneland?

Keeneland is a horse racing track located in the Lexington area.  It takes about an hour and a half to get there (but allow more time for traffic problems on race days)

Most people purchase our 12 hour package.  You’ll use most of it on your Keeneland day, but any left over time can be used a different day (restrictions apply).

How much are Keeneland tickets?

General admission is $20 – $25, and you can almost always get them at the gate.  Check their website, as this may be different due to Corona

If you want reserved grandstand tickets, you should probably get them ahead of time.

What time of day should we start?

Early!

While the first race is usually 1:05pm, parking at the tailgating area is often full well before that.

Most of our customers leave Cincinnati at 9:30am at the latest, which means you want us there at 9:00am to give you time to load up all your stuff!

What should we bring with us?

Chairs, food, snacks, and drinks.  Tailgating is a major production down there!

Don’t forget suntan lotion.

Is this a good idea for my clients and customers?

Absolutely.

Thnk about it.  A captive audiance for an entire day of fun.  We’ve had large corporations bring their clients every spring and fall year after year.  It’s a great way to  build client (and employee) loyalty!

 

 

When does Keeneland have live racing?

Live racing is only twice a year – April, and October, Wednesday – Sunday.

They are not open Mondays or Tuesdays.

 

What times are the races?

First race is usually 1:05pm.

After that, there’s a race every half hour till the last one at 4:00 or so (this varies).

What should we wear?

Many people dress up.

Dresses and (really) big hats for the ladies, jackets and bow ties in pastel colors for the men.

You’ll notice the vast majority of people there are dressed this way – it’s part of the fun!

Obviously you can also wear jeans or what not.  The choice is yours.

Can we eat and drink in the limo or party bus?

Yes.

In fact, we encourage it.  While Keeneland has drinks and food, it’s expensive.

Motortoys is BYOB, so you can have a Mint Julip in the limo or the tailgating area with your own fixins for probably a tenth of the cost.

Happy Customers

We take clients every year to the Spring and Fall meets in a Party Bus.  Our customers love it.

Every year, my friends take a day off from work and go to Keeneland for the day.  We all love it!

We’ve used them multiple times for the large bus and every trip has been great!
