Road Scholar
Program #1468RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Experience the heart and soul of the Derby as you watch the race via simulcast at the renowned Keeneland Thoroughbred racetrack. Plus, learn all about Derby history from industry experts; immerse yourself in the lives of thoroughbred champions, jockeys, training, racing, and breeding; examine the world of handicapping strategies and betting terminology; and enjoy special expressions of Kentucky Bluegrass heritage.


Highlights

• Learn about the history of thoroughbred racing and the Derby from a nationally recognized authority.
• Explore the International Museum of the Horse, the American Saddlebred Museum, the National Horse Center, and visit a renowned horse farm.
• Meet “Old Friends” at a facility for pensioned thoroughbreds, and dabble in Kentucky sources of pride —from Bourbon to scenic beauty and humor.

The races will be visible on television screens (large and small) throughout the facility.

Activity Notes
