I had never been to morning workouts at a track before since the local one (Churchill Downs) where I grew up didn't allow it. I even called them to ask but they seemed horrified by the idea of what they frostlly called an "unlicensed person" asking about such a thing (other than the special occasion "Dawn at the Downs." The person on the phone offered to sell me a tour instead.) Have since found been able to go to them at Oaklawn and Keeneland, where you don't need a license to watch the horses in the morning and even have some biscuits and gravy at the track kitchen. They seem happy to have us great unwashed and unlicensed folks.
