Kentucky Downs is the only all-turf (grass) flat racing thoroughbred track in North America. Live races are held in September.
The newest experience in horse racing is "Instant Racing" with Kentucky Downs being the the first track to offer Instant Racing in Kentucky. Instant Racing is a hybrid between slot machines and parimutuel wagering where bettors play at a terminal using historical racing data and video. The Downs also has simulcast racing over 300 days a year from tracks all around the country. "The Club House Bar & Grill" serves appetizers, gourmet sandwiches, soups, steak and baked potato on Friday nights, salads, desserts. For those who imbibe, there is a fully stocked bar.
See Kentucky Downs in the Attractions category for more information.
Kentucky Downs is easily accessed from I-65 exit 2 - about 1 mile south on Hwy. 31W.
