Keeneland Special Events Calendar Showcases Fall Stars

Lexington, KY (Oct. 2, 2012) – Keeneland celebrates its signature “Fall Stars” theme by spotlighting a “star” each week of the fall meet, which runs Oct. 5-27.

Racing is the star as Keeneland opens with its exciting Fall Stars Weekend (Oct. 5-7), with many of the nation’s most talented Thoroughbreds, trainers and jockeys competing in nine graded stakes worth more than $3 million. Seven Fall Stars stakes are Breeders’ Cup Challenge races in which the winners automatically qualify for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships to be held Nov. 2-3 at Santa Anita Park.
