Kentucky Downs features a one-of-a-kind European-style turf course that offers a fair test to horses at all levels of competition.  The course is also among the longest courses in North America at 1.3125 (1 5/16) miles in length. With subtle elevation changes throughout the course, a sweeping turn into the stretch run and a quarter-mile run from the end of the final turn to the finish line, racing at Kentucky Downs is unlike any racing seen this side of the Atlantic Ocean.
































































































































   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. "Jack Potts Grille" serves appetizers, gourmet sandwiches, soups, steak and baked potato, salads, desserts.   For those who imbibe, there is a fully stocked bar.
