RED MILE RACECOURSE  
The racecourse of Red Mile can be found at the town of Lexington in the state of Kentucky, and is famous for its harness racing circuit. It normally holds 2 main seasons of racing, from April to June, and again from September to October. It is so named because of the red clay soil that forms its racing surface. Its inaugural meeting was on 28th September 1875.
  Its principal race is the Kentucky Futurity for 3 year olds, and has a history dating back to 1893. This race forms part of the trotting Triple Crown alongside the Yonkers Trot and the Hambletonian, once held at the course in 1927.  
Other feature races include the Tattersalls Pace, the Bluegrass Stakes and the Lexington Breeders Classics.
