Last spring, nearly 1,000 students participated in the drawings for the scholarships.
On Friday, Oct. 10, 10 lucky college students each will receive a $1,000 scholarship to attend an institution of higher learning of their choice as part of a collaborative project between Keeneland and the Kentucky Thoroughbred Association.Students who present a valid college I.D. and complete the necessary registration form will be eligible for a random drawing in which ten $1,000 scholarships will given away throughout the day, along with free admission to the races that day. A scholarship will be given away after each of Keeneland's nine races, with the tenth scholarship going to a student who has a parent working in the horse industry. Students who wish to register for either drawing must enter through the East Entrance. Students also must be present to win.
