It's opening weekend for Keeneland's Spring Meet!

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- And they're off!

In Lexington, anyway.

It's opening weekend for Keeneland's Spring Meet. Today is College Scholarship Day.

$1,000 scholarships are given away after each of the 10 races. Plus, admission is free for full-time students. And on Saturday, it's the Ashland Stakes -- one of the last big preps for the Kentucky Oaks.

And if you're heading that way, you might want to give yourself extra time.

A major construction project is underway on U.S. 60.
