While you’re at the park, don’t miss the view from the Eiffel Tower, a scaled down version of the Paris Landmark, and keep an eye out for your favorite characters from Nickelodeon and Paramount movies.
Ten minutes from downtown, Turfway Park offers year-round pulse-pounding horse racing action. Renamed Turfway Park in 1986, the track opened in 1959 as Latonia Race Course. Turfway is the successor to Old Latonia, which operated from 1883 to 1939 about 10 miles north of the present site. Patrons can enjoy a gourmet meal in the Clubhouse or visit the Paddock to watch the horses parade before placing their bets. Turfway Park features the $500,000 Lane’s End Stakes and the $350,000 Kentucky Cup Classic Handicap.
