Horsemen Information


Kentucky Downs is home to America’s only European-style (all turf) racecourse, and at one mile and five-sixteenths in length, it is one of the longest tracks in the nation. Unlike other racetracks, which are typically oval, the course at Kentucky Downs is kidney-shaped, featuring undulation and a unique right-hand bend. The track’s average field size of about 11 horses per race also tops America, which combined with the lowest overall betting “takeout” has made Kentucky Downs the top-rated track by the Horseplayers Association of North America.
