2024 Keeneland Meet Stakes Schedule

Keeneland's 2024 Spring meet, will offer a season-record $8.1million for 19 stakes including the 100th running of the $1 million Blue Grass Stakes. Stakes races are the pinnacle of competition in the sport of horse racing and attract some of the best horses in their class level.  Along with a field of the best horses also comes some of the best wagering opportunities.

Why Keeneland Stakes Races Are Often Times The Best Races To Play

At Keeneland, we'll often see the best value bets during the weekdays but with fewer bettors in the pool the payouts on the exotics can be a bit discouraging.  With weekend stakes races at Keeneland the interest and crowds grow larger along with the betting pools which typically translates into larger payouts.  Stakes races also typically offer a field of horses that have been kept in form through multiple workouts and prep races giving a handicapper more information about a horses ability and a better understanding of their chance in the race.

If you don't have the time to watch all the prep races and pour over the past performances, Today's Racing Digest's expert handicappers give you a complete race analysis along with their thoughts on each horses chances in each race on the card.
