EASTERN KENTUCKY EQUESTRIAN CENTER
Designed by Populous and in consultation with the Kentucky Quarter Horse Racing Association, a 660-yard sprint track is planned.
Plans call for year-round use for quarter horse shows and competitions in a world-class competition arena.
What People Are Saying
This project is as much about economic development as it is the quarter horse community. We are very grateful and humbled by the confidence shown by the commission and the support from the governor’s office, the Mountain legislative caucus, Boyd County, the city of Ashland and the people of eastern Kentucky.
We have all rallied behind this project because we understand what it will mean for our community – from jobs to tax revenues to quality of life. Revolutionary Racing has been a true partner with us throughout this process and we look forward to them being part of our community for many years to come.
This is a historic day for the thousands of quarter horse owners who call Kentucky home. For decades, we’ve had to travel to other states to race, so we are ready to welcome our friends from across the country to come here and add to the legacy and tradition that is Kentucky horse racing.
We are excited to take the next step in our journey to bring a world-class facility to Boyd County. We will continue to work closely with the KHRC, our quarter horse partners and the community as we build something that all Kentuckians can be proud of.
