One of the year’s biggest events, the Racing Festival of the South, brings tens of thousands race fans to Hot Springs.
Major races and special events happen through the week. On Saturday mornings, Dawn at Oaklawn provides horse enthusiasts up-close and personal experience with the horses, trainers, and jockeys. It’s a time to see the horses in a stress-free, non-racing environment, when they’re way more playful!
For the Apple Blossom race on Friday, April 13, we’re awaiting official news of Havre de Grace, the current Horse of the Year, defending her crown. Apparently her owners will decide by April 7 if she will make another appearance at Oaklawn. What an opportunity to see an amazing horse!
On Saturday, don a hat and come to the Arkansas Derby. You’ll see top horses, have fun, and spend the day in a beautiful setting.
We’d love to welcome you to Lookout Point for the Racing Festival!
