Day at the Races

Join Hindman settlement school for a day of racing at the historic keeneland racetrack on Thursday, October 20!

We are thrilled to be able to host the 20th annual Hindman Day at the Races and to be able once again to gather with friends and supporters from both near and far to celebrate and support the vital work that happens each day at the Forks of Troublesome Creek.

Our annual Day at the Races is filled with friends and fellowship alongside delicious fare, live music, and the chance to bid on unique experiences and items. There are several ticketing options to best fit your preferred style of enjoying racing!
