Message for Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event Patrons with PINK Parking Permits

Rolex KY Three-Day Event Logo

Please consider this helpful parking tip for Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event patrons with pink parking permits: Due to heavy traffic and limited access from Iron Works Pike (no left turn into “Pink Parking Location”), we suggest pink parking permit holders follow Newtown Pike (KY922) to Iron Works and then westbound to the Kentucky Horse Park, then follow the signs to turn right into the “Pink Parking Location."

Have a great event!
