An afternoon at Keeneland often produces needs: a tip on a good horse, a list of what's going on or some good ol' burgoo.
Well that tipster you need is as close as your pocket, or your purse, or wherever you keep your smartphone.
Keeneland has had an app for the past few years, dubbed "the burgoo finder" by some users, and the Fall Meet brings several new features.
■ Race replays.
■ Updated Handicappers' Consensus noting the "Hot Handicapper" for each race day.
■ An enhanced calendar and promotions.
■ Live chat with Jeremy Plonk of Horse Player NOW.
They are added to popular features such as the up-to-the-minute race information, an interactive map that leads you directly to what you're looking for (like burgoo) and the bet-from-your-phone feature. To download the app, simply search for Keeneland in the App Store on your Apple device or the Google Play Store on Android.
