Gate Placements


Keeneland will publish daily information about the placement of the starting gate and run-up distances on for the remainder of the Fall Meet as a reference for handicappers and horsemen. As at any racetrack, in an effort to preserve the track for the duration of the race meeting while assuring the safest racing surface possible, Keeneland has multiple gate placement options for the Turf Course that create varying run-up distances.  Run up distances for races conducted on the main track will remain consistent.
