Horse on the walking track

The Breeders’ Cup Festival is proud to work in coordination with the Kentucky Derby Museum to create a fun and memorable field trip experience at Churchill Downs for area Fifth Graders.

On Monday, October 15 and Tuesday, October 16, up to 500 students a day will visit 10 different stations during a 3-hour experience, each offering a lesson in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Social Studies, and more. The subject of each lesson will be related to championship horse racing and/or the equine industry, which should make for an interesting and fun learning experience.

Fifth Grade classes from Jefferson County Public Schools and Louisville Archdiocese Schools will be eligible to participate. Complimentary bus transportation will be offered to each participating school. For more information and to request an application for participation, please email Ronnie Dreistadt at rdreistadt@derbymuseum.org.
