My fiance and I always have a blast here (we're 25). Its recently renovated. Check out their membership deals and promos. We got a free $100 to play with when we went. They said if we lost 100 we would be reimbursed. I thought it would be some fluke deal, but they really did send me a check in the... More

What I loved most about this special place is how wonderfully accessible it is and we so enjoyed taking family photos on the grounds. This was off season, so it wasn't difficult. A great horse track & barn that gives you all the KY feels!

Slots, food and drinks, what more do you need?! Perfect for down time or in between events. Bars in city close at 2:30, but Red Miles is open until 4 or later. Friendly helpful staff, fun games!

The Red Mile went through a major upgrade last year and in doing so they added "slot machines". Each time you "spin" you are betting on a horse race that has already been run. There is a small video screen for you to see the race results. The results of the race determines how much you win. I recommend you... More

The Red Mile is an old staple in Lexington. The place has recently gone through an extensive remodel. There is a modern casino, live band, horse race betting from all tracks running all over. Very nice bar, both upstairs and downstairs. Very well thought out and beautiful place since the remodel. Very modern with a rich history.

The Red Mile is a beautiful, newly renovated facility for horse racing and betting. The Trotters, horse shows, etc. show another form of racing that Lexington is know for.

We stared off our day intending to go to Keeneland. But after parking, waiting in line for ever we gave up and ended up here. What great luck!!! Way less crowded, the kids were able to get right up by the finish line to watch. Beautiful clean track and facility- what a blast!! Can't wait to come back again!!
