2017 is almost over, and that means it is time for planning the next grand horse race tour of the USA. The 2018 Triple Crown session is almost here, and people are already planning to travel to the race destinations to be a part of the thrill. We are also hoping to see another Triple Crown Challenger rise to the expectations like Always Dreaming did this year. Although we will not get to see Always Dreaming or Cloud Computing next year at the Triple Crown races, we do hope to see some serious contenders for the 2018 crown.
So save the dates for some of the most thrilling events that can change the history of equestrian racing in the face of the USA next year.
The Kentucky Derby 2018
Start your tour with Louisville, Kentucky. The Kentucky Derby is going to be on May 5, 2018. You must go down to Churchill Downs to experience the most significant event of horse racing of the year. Getting hotels in the central city can be difficult unless you make a move soon enough. There are quite a few places that are selling packages for hotels, races, and sightseeing for the tourism-loving horse race aficionados.
The 2018 Kentucky Derby is going to be crowded, happening and exciting. While you are at the location for the derby, do not miss the real taste of Louisville. Taste the classic southern cuisine and visit the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. Take a bit of Louisville back with you after you shop at the local flea markets for souvenirs.
The Preakness 2018
The 2018 Preakness is going to be one of the most happening equestrian races in modern history. Aside from the good old adrenaline rush at the race course, you can sample the Preakness grandeur in the form of weeklong activities.
Start your tour with the hilltop sunrise on the 16th and continue a tradition of breakfast galas, meet and greets, exclusive parties right till the racing eve. So plan your trip to Baltimore, Maryland this May. The main events start on the 19th of May and continue till the 22nd.
For the historic Breeders Cup, you will have to travel back to Churchill Downs in Louisville. The Breeders Cup schedule is already out, and it puts the main events on the 2nd and 3rd November. It is going to be the 35th Breeders Cup, and it is going to be epic.
We expect to see some of the most famous participants from last year and a whole bunch of new names that can potentially claim the final crown of the Triple Crown 2018. Horse racing in Kentucky is older than 200 years. Churchill Down is a legendary arena that beckons the horse race lovers from around the world to come down for an exciting event next November.
Horse racing is a part of the American heritage. The varied climate and the landscape are quite ideal for horse breeding. It gives the USA the keen advantage of rearing some of the most excellent racehorses and organizing galvanizing horse races every year!
