Kentucky Derby 2019

  • Carmel Valley is sunnier and more temperate than most towns in the Monterey area.

  • Hike up the Santa Lucia Mountains for spectacular views of the valley and the coastline.

  • The scenic 1.5-mile South Bank Trail on the Carmel River is ideal for family-friendly walking and biking.



There’s nothing quite like the buzz of anticipation and excitement that surrounds the Kentucky Derby, “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.” Join Inspirato—sponsor of the 145th Kentucky Derby—to watch the action unfold from the esteemed Millionaires Row. This historic race brings out the best of the best in horse racing to run for the roses. Fancy hats, seersucker suits, and mint juleps will all be in abundance this weekend. Apart from the race, members will enjoy a Welcome Cocktail Party, the Taste of Derby event, and Friday’s Longines Fashion Show. Members who purchase the Champions Package will also have the opportunity to view Friday’s Secret Status Race from the Winner’s Circle, and be there when the winner is crowned.
