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.”

    I think getting rid of the #FakeDirt would be a better idea

      That “Fake dirt” allows them to run the schedule they do.

          It is what it is friend.

            Okay, okay, okay
            I get it

            I see you’re an Orioles fan. Got any predictions for this upcoming Season? The AL East looks tough.

          • Lefty_Orioles_Fan

            Yankees look awfully tough
            Red Sox have a nice team

            Orioles are going to be middle of the pack, unless they get another pitcher signed or the prospects make the team and surprise most of us.

          • Kelso5timeHOTY

            Good luck. I’m a lifelong Cubs fan. The Brewers are going to be ultra tough this year in the NL Central.

          • Lefty_Orioles_Fan

            Yes, i thought they were going to sign or trade for a #1 type pitcher the Brewers and as for your team you finally got the Ring
