Hosted at the Kentucky Derby Museum at historic Churchill Downs
Kick off your Father’s Day Sunday in style at world-famous Churchill Downs. Horse racing in Kentucky is rich in history, dating back to 1789 when the first race course was laid out in Lexington. However, it was almost 100 years later, in 1875, that Churchill Downs officially opened and began its tradition as “Home of the Kentucky Derby.”
Take a guided tour of the legendary track and explore the tradition, history, hospitality and pride of the world-renown Kentucky Derby in the Kentucky Derby Museum. Hold on to your hats while experiencing “The Greatest Race,” a thrilling, larger-than-life 360-degree cinematic experience that will set your heart racing and your spirit soaring.
Afterwards, sit down to a Southern brunch in the company of Churchill Downs’ resident Thoroughbred, Unreachable Star, and miniature horse, Winston, as you overlook the Oaks Garden Terrace. Enjoy a Bourbon Bloody Mary and sample some of your favorite Bourbons from your hosts–Jim Beam, Four Roses, and Maker’s Mark–before you head out to the track to watch the races.
This event is a great end to the Kentucky Bourbon Affair and a fantastic gift for dad on Father’s Day.
