Turfway Park adding optional February dates to live racing schedule | News
FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - Tri-State Horse racing fans will be excited to know that the Turfway Park has decided to stay open for additional days in February.
General Chip Bach announced Wednesday that the Northern Kentucky track will present live racing all four Fridays and Saturdays in February.
“Our decision to race these dates was influenced by our continued strong field size, the response to our Friday night events, and the horsemen’s preference to maintain the continuity of racing rather than take the two-week break,” said Bach.
The decision was made at the Kentucky Horse racing commission’s October meeting, awarded these request to the Turfway park with support of both Kentucky Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Associations and by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission
Turfway’s current winter/spring meet began Jan. 1 and runs through Mar. 30. The track is racing Friday, Saturdays, and Sundays in January; no optional dates were included in the January allotment.
