Turfway Park officials unveiled a $25 million grandstand renovation plan that would also include historical racing games.
According to Cincinnati.com, Turfway officials presented the proposed renovation plans to the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission during its meeting earlier this week. Turfway's General Manager, Chip Bach, told the commission that $500,000 had been allocated for architectural drawings and engineering plans which would overhaul the grandstand.
The renovations will include a redesigned entrance and updated restrooms, and part of the second floor of the grandstand will be reserved for the installation of historical racing games.
A timetable for the project has not yet been finalized, although Bach admitted that an upgrade to the facility, which was built in 1959, was long overdue.
“The facility is showing its age, and we want to make a better presentation from the outside,” Bach said. “But there are a lot of Gremlins here, so we want to make sure we've identified everything we need to do with regard to the facility before we can get a start date for construction.”
