Tradition is Born
On Tuesday, September 28, 1875, Lexington celebrated Red Mile’s inaugural opening of the Great Fall Trots, sponsored by the newly reorganized Kentucky Trotting Horse Breeders Association.
For over one hundred and forty years, harness racing’s elite have converged on Red Mile to stage some of the greatest equine battles in history.
Red Mile Re-Imagined
In September 2015, Red Mile was recreated as a fresh, new entertainment destination, giving you even more ways to play:
- Over 900 gaming terminals in 138 themes
- Simulcast races on 175 HD televisions
- Live music and special events
Red Mile now combines the hottest entertainment in Kentucky with our celebrated racing history. Come for the tradition, leave with a jackpot.
