BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (WAVE) – Changes are coming to a Northern Kentucky horse racing venue.

Churchill Downs-owned Turfway Park will undergo a $5.6 million overhaul to install a new synthetic track.

The removal of Turfway's existing Polytrack and installation of the new Tapeta synthetic track will take place immediately following the close of Turfway's meet on March 28.

It is expected to be ready for the 2020 Holiday Meet in early December.
