Welcome To The Keeneland Kids Club


The Keeneland Kids Club in partnership with the UK HealthCare Kentucky Children’s Hospital is the free official club for Keeneland fans 12 and under. The Keeneland Kids Club is a program that was formed to support Keeneland’s mission to educate and give back to both the equine industry and the Kentucky community. Through the Kids Club, children are able to experience Keeneland through exclusive events, educational opportunities and communications to grow their love of horses and racing. 

New members will receive a personalized membership packet, special emails each month from Buckles with highlights from other members of the thoroughbred community. Kids Club members will receive a birthday card and exclusive invitations to gather for annual events. Register now for your FREE Keeneland Kids Club Membership.
