Next month the Boston Pops will launch their Holiday Tour, which will include stops in Worcester; Lowell; Providence; Storrs, Connecticut; and Manchester, New Hampshire. But before the seasonal festivities get underway, Keith Lockhart and the orchestra will delve into a quirkier thematic program this Saturday, October 15, when they join the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra at Rupp Arena in Lexington for “Post Time with the Pops.” Fittingly enough, this celebration of the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Keeneland thoroughbred auction house and racetrack will feature music with an equestrian bent, including such classics as the ''Light Cavalry'' and ''William Tell'' overtures, along with the ''Seabiscuit Suite'' by Randy Newman and the Carmen Dragon arrangement of Stephen Foster's ''Camptown Races.'' And speaking of races, the Keeneland fall race season continues through October 29.
