Though previous Motive Travel Kentucky Derby tours have long since galloped off in to the Midwest sunset, there’s no need to get all long-faced.
In the past, we have treated small bands of race fans to the home of sweet bourbon and beautiful chicken – Kentucky, of course – for an extended American adventure, with seats at the famous Churchill Downs track for the Derby itself.
And what a grand time was had by all. From experiencing, first-hand, ‘the most exciting two minutes in sport’ to savouring the bright lights of Las Vegas and the never-ending delights of New York, if you feel like travelling beyond Kentucky, racing fans from the land Down Under can enjoy a fine occasion in the good old U.S. of A.
If you missed out on previous tours, try not to be too disheartened, as we can tailor-make an itinerary for you for the next Kentucky Derby!
