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.
