The Keeneland Bluegrass International Cup

September 8, 2023

The Keeneland Bluegrass International Cup has been celebrating Lexington’s world-class farms, city, and healthcare since 2007.

2023 will be the 17th year hosting this storied event.  This annual event is held at Mt. Brilliant Farm, a private horse farm in Lexington, Kentucky that embodies the beauty of horse country. With Keeneland as the title sponsor, the Bluegrass International Cup is held the Friday before the start of the Keeneland September Yearling sales, the world’s largest and most important sale of Thoroughbred racing prospects.

In addition to world-class, high-goal polo, the Keeneland Bluegrass International Cup features an open bar and delicious dinner, followed by live music and dancing.  BGIC is preceded by Evening in the Gardens, an intimate dinner and live auction at Mt. Brilliant Farm. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available for that event.

The Bluegrass International Cup is annual event that benefits both the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Foundation and the Fayette Alliance Foundation.
