I know this is a silly question for you all....

But how would I go about finding the meet dates (is this the proper term?) for say Churchill Downs?

I would be interested in figuring out meet dates for next spring.

Go to the website. They should have a calendar that will show the racing dates. However, they may not have set the spring dates yet.

Thanks. I did try that so I guess they just don't have the dates up yet, so I thought maybe I should look elsewhere...

Next question then... does the spring meet typically start anywhere near March 1st? I'm trying to schedule something that would be of greater benefit if I can do it during a meet vs not but I have no clue when meets tend to begin or end and don't want to sound like a dingbat for not knowing when I speak to a well respected person in the racing community :)

Last year the meet was 4/25 to 7/5. Best place to look is KHRC's website. As soon as the dates are approved, they'll be up. I think they are still negotiating ELP and TP for 2010.

I found the link for you.

Thanks so much, that helps a ton. The approximate dates help me get an idea of how I need to rearrange my schedule :)

Bloodhorse has future dates listed in the calendar section of their website.

It's not possible for them to have next year's Spring meet dates for CD. KY date requests aren't due until Oct. 1st.
