Could celebrity chef Bobby Flay bring a restaurant to Lexington?
While in town at the September Yearling Sale at Keeneland, Flay also spent time looking for potential restaurant sites in the state.
"We were looking at Louisville the other day, looked at about six, seven spaces," Flay said. "It was our first look, so we have to go back in and make our short list."
And is Lexington in the mix for that short list?
"Lexington is a special place to me. I spend a lot of time here," he said. "It's definitely a possibility."
Flay is closely connected to Thoroughbred racing. On Wednesday at Keeneland, one day after Flay sold a Tapit filly out of his Grade III winner Super Espresso for $1 million, his Tiznow filly out of his mare Countess Lemonade went to Stonereath Stud for $1.1 million.
