Keenland fall meet invite.

Thought I'd send out an invite to anyone that might be interested in a fun weekend. The fall racing meets at Keenland race track are coming up Oct 7th - Oct 29th here in Lexington, KY. If you've never been to the horse races, it's quite a lot of fun, even if not placing bets and just enjoying the atmosphere. Hell, I just had fun dressing up and walking around stogie in one hand, beer in the other, and a few winning tickets in my pocket! Though smaller than the more famous Kentucky Derby, Keenland still has great electric feel, pageantry, and beautiful grounds and facilities to wander.

I had never been to a horse race and really had no interest until I was convinced to go earlier this year for the spring meets. I had such a surprisingly great time I invited my parents down and went again. My dad is far from a betting man as he is very conservative, but he still loved the tailgating outside the track, being within arms reach of the horses, and enjoying the exciting atmosphere.

If anyone would like to head to Lexington for a weekend, send me a PM. You've got a place to stay, some fun races to watch, and I know some fantastic Kentucky roads for motorcycling.
