With instant racing, Kentucky Downs goes from sleepy track to very much alive

A year ago, Kentucky Downs in Franklin was a sleepy track, with only four days of turf racing a year on its unique "European-style" undulating turf track. Most of the year, the big draw was bingo. The bingo's still there, but since the arrival of another kind of game, called instant racing, the pace has picked up around the track.
