Red Mile Harness Racing Odds - Kentucky Futurity

Home > Off Track Racebooks > Red Mile Horse Track Odds > Possible Red Mile Race Track Runners

The Red Mile is the second oldest harness racing track in the world and one of the most respected harness racing tracks in the United States. Located in the heart of the Bluegrass region, an area of Lexington, Kentucky, famous for horse breeding and racing.

The Red Mile race track takes its name from the clay soil of its track. It has a Spring Meet that usually starts from late April to June; a brief Fall Meet that is typically held in September; and a Grand Circuit Meet that is normally held in September and October.

The race track's signature event is the Kentucky Futurity, a stakes race for three-year old trotters and is the third jewel in US harness racing's trotting Triple Crown. The two other big races are the Hambletonian (held at Meadowlands) and the Yonkers Trot (held at Yonkers Raceway).
