Keeneland will host its annual College Scholarship Day on opening day, April 2. The day will feature events and giveaways catering to college students, highlighted by draws for ten $1,000 scholarships courtesy of Keeneland and the Kentucky Thoroughbred Association.
Drawings for the scholarships, along with other prizes, will be held immediately following each of the day’s 10 races. Among the prize giveaways are an HP Pavilion Notebook from Best Buy, two $250 vouchers for eCampus textbooks, a $250 spa package from Posh Salon & Spa, RayBan Wayfarers from LensCrafters, a one-year membership to Urban Active Fitness Club, a $150 gift card from John’s Run Walk Shop, a $200 gift certificate to Merrick Inn, and box seats at Keeneland. Students must be present to win.
Students with a valid college ID receive free admission to the track, and can register for the drawings at the College Zone, located on the Grandstand North Terrace just past the paddock. The first 1,000 students to register will receive a complementary Keeneland College Day t-shirt courtesy of Hands on Originals.
Gates open at 11 a.m. EDT, with first post at 1:05 p.m.
