Delight in the horse capital of the world with an exclusive Kentucky Derby experience in Lexington.  Enjoy downtown accommodations at the Hyatt Regency Lexington while exploring what makes the Run for the Roses a truly special event. Sit front and center for all the excitement on Derby Day, taking in the sights and grandeur (and hats!!) of Churchill Downs. This specialty tour offers an unforgettable way to experience “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports”.

In 2022, WolfTreks offers two Kentucky Derby packages. The shorter five-day trip offers a Belle of Louisville Breakfast & Steamboat Cruise, a bourbon tour, morning workouts at Keeneland Race Course, select horse farm tours, lunch at Fasig-Tipton and, of course, Derby Day at Churchill Downs. The longer seven-day tour offers all of the above plus a behind-the-scenes tour at Keeneland (including a meet-and-greet with a trainer, observing morning workouts, and visiting the training barns), Kentucky Horse Park tour, drive down the Old Frankfort Pike, Dawn at Churchill Downs and a Kentucky Derby Museum visit.
