October 11 marks the 11th anniversary of Make-A-Wish Day® at Keeneland, the culmination of a rewarding experience for a special group of deserving children, while raising funds to make more life-changing wishes come true.

Each year, local Thoroughbred farms and organizations team up with Keeneland to create life-changing wishes for children from the ages of 2½ to 18 with critical illnesses. At Keeneland, the children and their families are treated to a VIP experience, complete with presenting a trophy after each race, meeting jockeys and experiencing all the excitement of a day at the races. Several local farms and equine medical facilities sponsor the participating wish kids. 

Get involved today by purchasing tickets for the October 11th races, donating, or volunteering.
