Lexington enjoys stable economy in the world of horse racing

June 13, 2012 by  

Lexington is the second-largest city in Kentucky with a thriving local and diversified economy. Sporting the nickname of “Horse Capital of the World,” the city is known for its vast horse farms and ranches, as well as the horse racing so famous within the state.

Two horse racing tracks, both with historic and cherished roots, can be found in Lexington: Keeneland and The Red Mile Harness Track. Keeneland began hosting live races in 1936 and continues to do so two times per year in much the same manner as during the beginning years. October is the next month scheduled for a race at Keeneland. The Red Mile Harness Track holds the title of being the oldest race track in the country. Sulkies, two-wheeled carts pulled by horses, is the featured race style at this track.

Printing companies in Lexington work closely with the horse racing industry in providing Banner Printing for the races as well as poster printing to market the race events. Many of the racing entities require business card printing for exchange at the various industry networking events as well.

Several annual events related to horse racing are held in Lexington including The Lexington Yearling Sale, which will be held October 2 – 6, 2012. Printing companies have worked with the organizers in processing catalog printing, with sale catalog now available to be ordered online via the Yearling Sale website.
