Lexington, KY - Join Kentucky Downs president Corey Johnsen for a special Friday edition of bloodhorse.com "Talkin' Horses." Johnsen will be the guest live online at http://www.bloodhorse.com/talkinhorses on Friday, August 17 at noon ET. Johnsen and investment banker Ray Reid formed a partnership to recently purchase majority ownership in Kentucky Downs racetrack. Johnsen is a former president of Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie. He and Reid are also Thoroughbred owners and breeders with horses in training in Kentucky, New York, and Florida, as well as Argentina and Uruguay.

Kentucky Downs, located near the Tennessee border in Franklin, Ky., is the only European-style course in the United States. The track offers a menu of turf races run over a mile and five-sixteenths oval--a tradition that continues with next month's six-day fall meet. Running from Sept. 15-25, the event is highlighted by the $500,000 Kentucky Cup Turf Festival Sept. 22, whose four stakes races include the $200,000 Kentucky Cup Turf (gr. IIIT).

The new owners promise that Kentucky Downs fans will notice a number of updates in the colonial-style clubhouse when the track reopens next month, including an expanded video system and more modern televisions.
