Keeneland joins the Innovators' Circle as a sponsor

We are pleased to announce Keeneland Association’s sponsorship of this year’s Innovators’ Circle to be held on Wednesday, December 9 at the Global Symposium on Racing & Gaming.

"Keeneland is sponsoring the Innovators' Circle as part of our total commitment to horse racing," said  Keeneland President and CEO Bill Thomason in announcing the sponsorship. "We understand that for our sport to be competitive, we must come up with new ideas to retain our customer base and create new fans."  

The Innovators' Circle is racing’s first pitch competition designed to stimulate innovation in the horseracing industry. The competition’s final round, presented as a Symposium session open to all attendees, consists of the entrepreneurs’ pitch to the panel of judges. The pitch will be followed by a Q&A session during which the judges have the opportunity to challenge the entrants with a series of questions. The winning participant/team will earn a cash prize of $15,000. 

The 42nd Annual Global Symposium on Racing & Gaming will be held at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, in Tucson, Arizona, December 7-9, 2015. Additional Innovators' Circle sponsorships are available. Click here for more more information.
