Officials say the title Railbird has ties to each horse racing and music. In horse racing, a railbird is an everyday who hangs on the rail across the observe to be near the motion. To “trip the rail” at a live performance means primarily the identical factor.

Railbird will happen on the meadow and hill surrounding Keeneland Aug. 10-11. It will provide completely different musical genres together with rock, bluegrass and people, and it’ll provide bourbon and equine-focused experiences together with off-track wagering.
