Keeneland Race Track has attracted millions of visitors since it opened in 1936.

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Keeneland invites people who interested in working at the Thoroughbred race track during the 2024 Spring Meet from April 5-26 to apply either in person at the Hiring Center or online at Keeneland.com/jobs. Keeneland is seeking to fill positions in Concessions, Culinary, Dining, Guest Services, Parking, Retail, Security, Track Kitchen and other areas. 

The majority of positions Keeneland is offering during the Spring Meet are entry level and do not require formal training other than the paid training that is provided by Keeneland. Tailored with flexibility in mind, many positions are also particularly well-suited for retirees seeking engaging seasonal employment opportunities. Employees for the entire Spring Meet typically work 40 paid hours each week. 

A number of available jobs are with Keeneland Hospitality, which provides food and beverage service for the entire Keeneland campus. People with all levels of culinary and wait staff experience are urged to apply. They will receive the opportunity to gain valuable food and beverage experience while training directly under talented chefs.
