ONce you sign up for a casino card at the Red Mile, they then lure you back in after one week with a free steak dinner. Let me tell you, we were thrilled it was free, because it sure wasn't worth paying for! You are offered either prime rib or alfredo pasta. I had the pasta, and my husband had... More

The beauty of red mile is that it's not nearly as stuffy as keeneland can be but the downside of that is that it can be a little bit grosser as far as cleanliness goes. I haven't been since they renovated so it may be nicer now. It definitely is fun to watch the cart racing and if you're new... More

this place is a gem. Folks new to the racino (although not called this) get 10 dollars of free play and a rep takes the new folks around to make sure they know how to play the games. On Wednesdays if you get 15 points you can buy anything in the cafe for 99 cents (no alcohol). The slots are... More

My fiance and I always have a blast here (we're 25). Its recently renovated. Check out their membership deals and promos. We got a free $100 to play with when we went. They said if we lost 100 we would be reimbursed. I thought it would be some fluke deal, but they really did send me a check in the... More

What I loved most about this special place is how wonderfully accessible it is and we so enjoyed taking family photos on the grounds. This was off season, so it wasn't difficult. A great horse track & barn that gives you all the KY feels!

Slots, food and drinks, what more do you need?! Perfect for down time or in between events. Bars in city close at 2:30, but Red Miles is open until 4 or later. Friendly helpful staff, fun games!

The Red Mile went through a major upgrade last year and in doing so they added "slot machines". Each time you "spin" you are betting on a horse race that has already been run. There is a small video screen for you to see the race results. The results of the race determines how much you win. I recommend you... More
