When longtime friends Tim McCall and David Holloway decided they wanted to return live Quarter Horse racing to Kentucky, they knew they faced an uphill battle. Now, the matter may end up in court.
Plans for a Quarter Horse racetrack in southeast Kentucky were detailed before the Kentucky Racing Commission Sept. 24, but the panel said it wants more financial data before it considers granting Southern Bluegrass Downs a racing license.
Ten-year-old Bet On Sunshine has been retired after reaggravating a chronic injury in his left front suspensory ligament.
A proposed Quarter Horse racetrack in Kentucky has raised concerns by other industry interests in the state, but Southern Bluegrass Racing plans to apply later this summer for 2003 racing dates.
He might be 10 years old, but David Holloway's Bet On Sunshine is preparing to compete in the June 29 Aristides Handicap, a grade III event he has won the past two years.
