Richmond (Ky.) Register

Keeneland proposes to build a $30-million Quarter Horse racetrack near Corbin, Kentucky.

Litigation surrounding the license for a Quarter Horse racetrack near Corbin, Kentucky, continues after an injunction hearing scheduled for January 12 was postponed.

Keeneland has been trying for several years to return Quarter Horse racing to Kentucky. Its plans for the license include a $30-million facility to hold 350 Instant Racing machines and a 120-room hotel. The plan is for the track, to be called Cumberland Run, to hold a 12-day Quarter Horse meet in 2017.

Corbin is located south of Lexington on Interstate 75.
