Fans of American Pharoah might have another chance to see the Triple Crown winner before the Breeders' Cup Classic on Saturday.
After rain Wednesday morning washed out plans for a possible on-track jog, owner Ahmed Zayat tweeted that his horse would go to the track on Thursday.
On Wednesday afternoon, Keeneland decided to let fans come: the track will let you park for free on The Hill on Thursday morning until 10:30 a.m.
Spokeswoman Amy Gregory said training on the main track runs from 6:15 to 9:30 a.m., so that should give fans a chance to catch a glimpse of the horse, assuming things go as expected.
Never miss a local story.
To get to the track, enter at Gate 4 off Van Meter Road; there will be shuttles to take fans to the track, beginning early in the morning, likely before 6 a.m.
After 10:30 a.m., it will cost $5 to park at The Hill, which is where cars without pre-paid parking passes will be routed for the Prelude to the Cup, Keeneland's dress rehearsal for the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships on Friday and Saturday.
If you are coming to the Prelude you can park at The Hill on Thursday only, or you can take a shuttle from Rupp Arena or the Kentucky Horse Park. Pre-paid parking passes are available in advance at Keeneland.com for $15. Day-of parking passes can be purchased at the Kentucky Horse Park (but not at Rupp Arena) and are $20 per vehicle.
"Walk-up" shuttle service from Rupp Arena is available for $5. The parking pass includes shuttle service to and from Keeneland for you and those in your vehicle along with a free Prelude to the Cup program for each person.
Tickets to the races were to be available online at keeneland.com until midnight Wednesday and after that at the main ticket gate at the track. General admission is $5; dining and seated options are available.
Gates for Prelude open at 11 a.m.; the first of nine races is at 12:30 p.m.
Additionally, you might get to see more Breeders' Cup contenders, who will be schooling in the paddock throughout the day.
