Secretariat Festival 2019

SECRETARIAT FESTIVAL – Save the Dates Oct. 11-13

The 2019 Secretariat Festival celebrating 1973 Triple Crown champion Secretariat is planned for Oct. 11-13 in the Lexington, Ky., area. The weekend will offer a series of events and activities for racing fans of all ages to share in the legacy of Secretariat and showcase the Bluegrass region’s rich horse heritage.

This year’s Festival will coincide with the historic unveiling of the new larger-than-life Secretariat Bronze Monument, a picturesque landmark that will welcome future visitors to the heart of horse country.

Additionally, the Festival remains committed to bringing fans together annually to enjoy celebrity-hosted horse farm tours with special visits to scenic Claiborne Farm, autograph appearances with numerous racing luminaries, exciting live racing at beautiful Keeneland Race Course, and an array of insider opportunities to access and experience the multi-faceted world of Thoroughbred racing.

If you are traveling to Lexington, a diverse selection of accommodations can be found in the area and we will be providing a preferred list of convenient suggestions in July. Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport, located across the road from Keeneland Race Course, is serviced by Allegiant Air, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines.

The Secretariat Festival launched in 2008 in Paris, Ky. In the decade since, thousands of attendees have gathered in the Bluegrass to toast the sport of racing and one of its most beloved champions. Proceeds from the event have benefited area charities as well as the Secretariat Foundation, which is committed to funding equine-related causes that enhance the welfare of the Thoroughbred community. Updates for this year’s festivities and future announcements will also be posted on the Secretariat Festival’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds.
