Go For Green at Kentucky Downs

29 Aug

Fans of turf racing will want to check out Kentucky Downs this Saturday. The weather is predicted to be partly sunny and warm in Franklin, KY, so there should be no surprises in store for bettors.

The unique Frankfort oval will be rolling out big, slots-fueled stakes races, including  the $750,000 Tourist Mile, $500,000 Kentucky Downs Juvenile, $500,000 Exacta Systems Juvenile Fillies, and $250,000 One Dreamer Stakes. The horsemen have predictably flooded the entry box, as Saturday’s card has drawn capacity fields of 12 or more horses for 8 of its 10 races, with the remaining two having drawn 10 and 11.

Both the Pick 4 and Pick 5 takeout at Kentucky Downs is 14%, so if you manage to put the right combination of winners together, you’ll get paid about a well as you can in the pari-mutuel game. Pleasanton OTB will be taking races 2-10 from Kentucky Downs, starting at 10:51am.
