Sunday Tour d’Elegance
Sunday, July 22, 2018
Vehicles leave from Keene Barn at 9:00 AM.
On Sunday July 22, 2018, the 15th annual Tour d’Elegance will depart from the Keeneland Library, adjacent to the Keene Entertainment Center, with the first car leaving at 9:00 am.
The 90 mile drive this year will cover beautiful Bluegrass roads, some of which have not been included in any of the previous Tours d’Elegance.
The mid-morning rest stop will be at Taylor Made, a family-owned and operated 1,100 acre Thoroughbred paradise located in Nicholasville, Kentucky. Taylor Made is home to California Chrome, winner of the 2014 Kentucky Derby and two-time Horse of the Year recipient. Snacks and beverages will be provided, and you can browse lovely items in the gift shop.
From Taylor Made, the drive will continue on more fun and challenging roads ending at Red Mile in downtown Lexington for a specially prepared luncheon. Since 1875, Red Mile has been an important part of the cultural and physical fabric of Lexington and the world of horse racing.
It is the second oldest harness track in the world, simulcasts three hundred and sixty-four days a year, hosts numerous horse sales, and features Parimutuel Gaming Terminals based on historical horse races or Historical Horse Racing.
After lunch you are invited to use the provided tokens to try your luck at the gaming terminals.
Please sign up soon for the 2018 Tour d’ Elegance. As always, proceeds from the Sunday tour benefit the Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
