October in central Kentucky is a time for falling leaves and festivals.  It’s also a season for college football and horse racing.  A group of Auburn football fans are getting a dose of both this week.  Keeneland is offering RV parking for out of town Tiger supporters.  Charles McIntyre made the trip to Lexington from Titis Alabama.  “We have been to the races.  Our first horse race ever.  This is the most amazing place we’ve ever been to,”  said McIntyre.

McIntyre says he rolled into town on Tuesday and the Keeneland staff has been most accommodating.   The Auburn supporter says he and his wife also took a stroll downtown, passed Commonwealth Stadium, and Rupp Arena.  From Lexington, they are off to Fayetteville for a game against Arkansas.
