About Turfway Park
Part of Kentucky's year round Thoroughbred racing circuit, Turfway Park presents live racing from December through March. Opened in 1959 as Latonia Race Course, the track was renamed Turfway Park in 1986 and has been owned since 1999 by a partnership that currently includes Caesars Entertainment, Rock Gaming, and Keeneland Association. Turfway Park is known for innovation; the track introduced night racing to Kentucky, was the first Kentucky track to offer simulcast and intertrack wagering, and in 2005 pioneered the use of an all-weather surface for racing. Turfway Park is home to the $550,000 Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes (G3), a designated prep race for the Kentucky Derby.
