Statement from Keeneland and Red Mile regarding temporary closure of historical racing operations at Red Mile:
“We were disappointed the Kentucky Supreme Court denied our petition for rehearing. At this time, Keeneland and Red Mile have made the very difficult decision to temporarily close historical horse racing operations until there is more clarity surrounding the situation. We have confidence the Kentucky legislature will continue its efforts to protect jobs and state revenue generated by historical horse racing, as well as protect Kentucky’s signature horse racing industry.”
Red Mile will close at end of business on Sunday, January 24th. A reopening date has not been identified at this time.
