Turfway Park which has again cut racing dates in the hope of increasing overnight purses when it reopens in late November, will offer a slimmed down stakes schedule for its holiday and winter/spring meets.
The Kentucky track scheduled three $50,000 stakes–the Holiday Inaugural, Prairie Bayou, and Holiday Cheer–for the holiday meet that runs from Nov. 29-Dec. 31. Seven stakes including the $500,000 Spiral and $100,000 Bourbonette Oaks (both gr. III) are scheduled for the winter/spring meet that spans Jan. 1-March 30.
