Keeneland is enjoying another record-setting meet.

Coming on the heels of posting top attendance figures last fall, the track set a new high mark this spring.

It hosted a little more than 269,000 race goers over its 15 day meet.

This was the final meet for Keeneland President Nick Nicholson.

He recently announced he's retiring in September after 13 years.

Keeneland also recently welcomed an overflow crowd of more than 40,000 fans on Blue Grass Stakes Day.

The turnout set a new single-day attendance record.
