“A harness racing icon that must be see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

Harness racing is an All-American icon and the Red Mile is awesome. Go during the racing meet and see how great this type of racing is. The grounds are old school at its best ! They even have a horse sale in October and you can watch buyers bidding on their next harness racer.

“The Greatest Harness Racing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Make The Red Mile a stop during the Grand Circuit meet this fall racing Thursday - Sunday from September 25 - October 5. It's a beautiful, fun place to spend a fall afternoon watching the horses race.

Awesomest Racetrack In The World.
Just like that.

Fell in love with The Red Mile after it was on my bucketlist for waaaayyyyy too long.
A Racetrack How A Racetrack Should Be.
Close to the horses.
It feels like being in the good ole days.
Charming restaurant filled with smoke where it is easy to get fat. Love it.
Best Racing In The World. They are all there, right in front of you.

Never change into these casino-type of tracks, Red Mile. Though i know you will have to adept to survive.
I love you.

Try to beat this, Dubai.

“Another Lexington Track”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

This is the place for trotters in Lexington. The scheduled races are infrequent but enjoyable. Don't be surprised by the place -- it is not Keeneland or Churchill Downs. Badly in need of renovation, the grandstand and club levels are only above average. Harness racing is not thoroughbred racing. It is a very different sport with a different crowd both on the track and in the stands. Go for the races, not the ambience. Betting is encouraged but tricky because there is not much information about the horses.
