Turfway Park officials announced Tuesday that following the close of the Winter/Spring Meet on April 1, the barn area and racetrack will remain open for year-round training and stabling.

Trainers wishing to fill out a stall application can visit or contact Peggy Pate at Stall applications are due by March 24.

This year, Turfway Park finished construction on a new dormitory for backstretch workers and five new barns. The track can stable approximately 1,000 horses.

Local trainers expected to remain stabled at Turfway Park and race on the Kentucky circuit include Jeff Greenhill, Will Walden and Ethan West. They’ll join Kentucky mainstays Steve Asmussen, Brad Cox and Mike Maker who are all expected to keep a string of horses stabled in Northern Kentucky.
