One of the under-appreciated experiences offered by Kentucky’s
embattled horse racing industry has already reached its midpoint as two
days of competition remain in the abbreviated four-day, all-turf meet
at Franklin’s Kentucky Downs south of Bowling Green.
Run over an undulating European-style 1 3/8-mile grass course that
comes within a whisker of crossing into Tennessee on its far turn,
racing at the Southern Kentucky track offers a singular experience for
those who want to enjoy it at its best.
