HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Sept. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Hard Rock's Turfway Park project, that was recently presented to members of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, is a rewarding project, not only for Florence, but for all thoroughbred racing in Kentucky. We've heard of another company trying to take over the existing race dates, however, we are focused on bringing our world-class entertainment to Northern Kentucky, as well as working hard to keep those dates at our venue, which were submitted by the JACK team on July 30, 2019 to the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.
With venues in 74 countries, Hard Rock is a world-renowned entertainment company with proven success in restaurants, horse racing, hotels and casinos. In Phase One, we will invest significant dollars to provide a first-class facility for horse racing and we're excited to add historical horse racing machines, which will significantly increase purses and provide an improved horse racing experience in Northern Kentucky.
