Breeders’ Cup 2022

Each racing season ends with just one finish line: the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. It’s the two-day, 14-race, year-end culmination that every horse, jockey, trainer and owner across the globe has in their sights. Where the world’s greatest come together to crown champions, and spectators celebrate as history unfolds before their eyes. It’s two days full of exciting events both on and off the track, glamorous fashion, celebrity sightings and food curated by world-renowned chefs.

We are extremely excited to welcome the Breeders’ Cup back to Lexington this year. While the races themselves will take place at Keeneland on November 4 and 5, the Breeders’ Cup Festival will have Lexington bustling with activity the entire week leading up to this historic racing event.

Downtown Lexington will be at the heart of the festivities, with something to do every single day, including live music and watch parties at Tandy Park, projection mapping on the courthouse, and an international block party at Greyline Station, among other exciting offerings. Visit the Breeders’ Cup Festival website below for more information and a full schedule of events.
