I know all eyes are focused on Louisville and the Kentucky Derby but i Just wanted to give a shout out to Kentucky Downs. The European style all turf track just announced their schedule for the fall and its a doozy. Daily purses will average $1.56 million with maiden races running for $130,000 and allowances for $145,000, unheard of numbers in this day and age. They will run 12 stakes for 3.95 million as well. All that equals big quality fields and competitive racing. Its a great little niche meet, that has gotten progesively better year after year. Well done!
