Caesars Entertainment, in partnership with Keeneland and Red Mile Gaming & Racing, celebrated the grand opening of Caesars Sportsbook at Red Mile last Thursday. The more than 4600-square-foot sportsbook in Lexington is the only retail sportsbook in Central Kentucky. Governor Andy Beshear placed the ceremonial first bet alongside Chairman Jonathan Rabinowitz of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, Caesars, Keeneland, and Red Mile representatives.
“Caesars Sportsbook at Red Mile brings a premier in-person sportsbook to an iconic Kentucky destination. We’re proud to partner with Keeneland and Red Mile to bring in-person sports wagering to life in a way that honors the important legacy they hold in the Bluegrass State. Sports fans and horse racing fans should expect an experience that treats them like royalty, similar to what they’ve enjoyed at our world-class destinations in the region,” Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital, said.
“Red Mile and Keeneland have prepared a premium space dedicated to sports wagering. We believe Caesars will provide excitement with their sports wagering product that exceeds expectations, and we are excited to invite the public out for the full experience. We hope guests will also take a moment to experience live harness racing, gaming, and great food and beverage while they are with us,” Shannon Cobb, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer at Red Mile, said.
“Keeneland is excited to team with Caesars and Red Mile, both of whom share our commitment to providing a quality fan experience. Sports wagering offers great potential for horse racing to reach new audiences, and we value Caesars demonstrated support of the sport nationwide,” Shannon Arvin, President and Chief Executive Officer at Keeneland, said.
Open seven days a week from 10 am to midnight, Caesars Sportsbook at Red Mile is a state-of-the-art Vegas-style sportsbook featuring five betting windows and an elevated bar area complete with wall-to-wall flatscreen televisions on the first floor and 14 self-service betting kiosks throughout the gaming floor and simulcasting areas. The second level of the venue includes an elevated atmosphere with a variety of comfortable seating arrangements for larger sporting events, views of the racetrack, and full food & beverage service throughout the space.
Caesars Entertainment’s partnership with Keeneland and Red Mile Gaming & Racing reinforces the Company’s commitment to horse racing and the expansion of the Caesars Racebook app, which is live in 17 states, including Kentucky. With mobile sports wagering launching in Kentucky on September 28, sports fans 21 and older can download the Caesars Sportsbook app on iOS and Android, visit caesars.com/sportsbook on desktop, or stop by Caesars Sportsbook at Red Mile to register and take advantage of a special early deposit offer when depositing between September 7 and 27.
