Our race week events are specially curated to share the very best of our Bluegrass with you and your loved ones! You’ll have as much fun riding on our luxury tour buses, meeting new friends and enjoying drinks and snacks as you will at your actual destinations!

Due to the logistics and restrictions of operating horse farms and distilleries, we prefer age 16 or older on our tours. Contact Rachel if you’d like to plan a more family-oriented activity!

*Please note: tours are non-refundable*
