Keeneland Five-day Summer Meet?

Keeneland Green LogoKeeneland has requested to the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission’s race dates committee to allow it to race July 8-12, a meet that would include the $600,000 Grade 2 Blue Grass – a popular Kentucky Derby prep race – on Saturday, July 11.

Ellis Park currently holds the July 8-12 race dates, and a switch must be approved by the KHRC.

“We are excited about the return of racing to Keeneland and know this will be welcome news for our horsemen, fans and the Central Kentucky community,” Keeneland President and CEO Bill Thomason said. “This purse money represents significant income for horsemen, and while the races will be spectator-free, the Keeneland team is hard at work on creative ways to involve fans watching at home and to enhance our simulcast product for handicappers.”
