Turfway Park

Turfway Park is a horse racing facility with a one-mile thoroughbred track. It sits on a 197-acre complex in Florence, Kentucky.

Turfway Park was transformed by its former owner, Jerry L. Carroll, from a run-down track known as "Latonia Race Course" to what it is today an innovative, nationally-acclaimed facility.

Turfway Park has Fall, Holiday, and Winter/Spring meets. The most awaited racing event at Turfway Park during the Fall Meet is the Kentucky Cup. The Kentucky Cup Day of Champions has a long history of attracting and discovering new thoroughbred stars. Another big annual event is the Spiral Stakes, seen as a good training opportunity for many Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown aspirants.
