Hindman Day at the Races

October 18

Hindman Settlement School invites you to join us for the 17th annual Hindman Day at the Races, presented by Forcht Bank, on October 18, 2018 during the Fall Meet at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky.

The day begins with the “Taste of Hindman” brunch* in Keeneland’s historic Sales Pavilion featuring an array of bluegrass-inspired foods, live music, a silent auction, and a special presentation from Honorary DAR President General Lynn Forney Young. Following brunch, make your way trackside to one of several seating options for an afternoon of racing. Guests opting for tickets in the Lexington/Kentucky Room will be able to enjoy a full lunch buffet and table side service throughout the afternoon.

*Please note that the pre-race brunch replaces the former post-race reception. Please be aware of this change as you make travel arrangements.
