The rolling countryside of northern Kentucky is home to the beautiful and storied thoroughbred racetrack, Turfway Park. Thoroughbred horse races have been held in this location as far back as 1883 when the track was original called Latonia. In 1959, the newly rebuilt site was named Turfway Park. Thoroughbred racing continued here for the next 61 years. The track facilities are currently being demolished and will be rebuilt as a part of the Churchill Downs racing consortium.

Only 10 miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio, one of America's premier Thoroughbred racetracks is undergoing a facelift. Churchill Downs, the home of the Kentucky Derby, purchased Turfway Park. Currently, the track is being rebuilt to include a historic racing parlor. In the most recent ratings, Turfway Park was ranked #11 among more than 60 Thoroughbred Tracks in America. 

When Turfway Park reopens for racing, it will continue its remarkable string of innovative firsts. The track was the first in Kentucky to offer simulcast wagering in 1982. It also introduced the now universal betting practice of Pick-3 wagering to Kentucky in 1987. Turfway Park was the first track to offer the Super Carrel experience, which allowed players to watch races, watch replays, make bets, and order food without leaving the carrel.

While reconstruction continues, Turfway Players have been encouraged to engage its sister tracks, Churchhill Downs, Keeneland, and Red Mile. These tracks are even honoring winning betting tickets from past meets at Turfway Park. Those wanting a souvenir from the old track may purchase one of the blue grandstand seats from the company that is tearing down the old track facility. Information is available on the homepage of the track's website.

@theTDN A point of clarity: Ward won his 3rd consecutive *winter/spring meet* title. In between, Mike Maker won the 2019 holiday meet title. Our season crosses the turn of the year, so it's all one season but two separate meets.
