Lexington, KY –-- The 140th season of live racing action kicks off on Sunday night (Aug 3) at The Red Mile with a first post of 7 p.m.  Fans will be treated with a 16-race live program, featuring full fields arriving from all over the Midwest.

Sunday nights will once again feature a $5,000 Guaranteed Pick-4 pool in Races 6–9, in partnership with the USTA Strategic Wagering Program. 

The $1.4 million Kentucky Sires Stakes Super Night comes up on Sunday, August 31, and will feature a $15,000 Guaranteed Pick 4-pool. 

Fans will notice the popular 10-cent superfectas have returned, and will be available on every race with the exception of the start of the Pick-4 and the final race of the evening.  A 20-cent Super Hi Five will be part of the wagering menu on the last race of each card, where 100% of the net pool will carryover if no one selects the top five finishers. 

The popular $1 specials are back on Thursday nights, with $1 admission, hot dogs, draft beer, and soft drinks.
