(A look into the future … future home of the Louisville Thoroughbred Society / Photos by Gene McLean)

What may have started as a “dream project,” is now becoming a “Dream Come True.”

Step foot into the Hughes Lofts at 209 East Main Street today, and you will see an army of construction workers putting nails where visions once dominated. You will find brick layers turning images into concrete. You will find walls going up where renderings use to sit. You will find the front of the building being framed up for a new beginning.

The concrete beams are about ready to be poured on the new parking garage.

Plumbing equipment and piping are being installed on the second floor.

Heating and air condition duct work is already being installed.

Subway bricks are being stripped, cleaned and are starting to sparkle once more.

The elevator shafts have been completely blocked from basement to top floor.

New staircases are being airlifted and set into place.

Dust is flying.

And, so are our crews.

The new home of The Louisville Thoroughbred Society is going from dream to reality. Right before our eyes.

If you are interested in, invested in, a fan of the horse industry, or if you are looking for a premium private club — with has as much potential as a Keeneland September Yearling — come take a look. Go to our website at www.thelouisvillethoroughbredsociety.com. Take a spin through our building. Or our state-of-the-art web address.

Jump on board. We plan to be open by March 1, 2020 and ready to enjoy the Triple Crown Season for the new year. We will cap our membership at the first 800 to register.

We would love for you to be included. Don’t be left at the Starting Gate.

Dreams do come true. We are living proof.

Here’s a quick glimpse at all the progress:
