Workers are excited but admit they will be busy the next couple of days getting the track ready.

“It’s a great time of year, we all love it,” said Matt May with Keeneland. “This is a huge part of what central Kentucky and the Lexington community is about. We’re excited to have people out here. Come out and be ready to have fun.”
