    For you Kentucky folks

    My GF loves horse racing. We want to visit the horse tracks. Can I carry there or is it forbidden. From what I've seen there's nothing in the state law preventing me, but the individual parks can ban weapons.
    Specifically the places are: Turfway, the Lexington Horse Park, and of course Churchill.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I doubt that these places make most of their money from alcohol.

    Read the law carefully. I would play it safe and leave the heat at home or locked securely in your car. If you really want to know, drop the racetrack a note and then have their reply with you when you visit, if they answer positively.

    As it was described to us in my CCW class, if it is not a federal facility, and it isn't on the list of places you cannot go, you are legal no matter what the owner/operators say, or post. They do however have the right to throw you out, if you get caught.


    If it makes you fee better, I am in lexington frequently, and I can swing by the horse park to see if they are posted or not.

    You might also try looking around on www.kc3.org


    BTW, once you cross over into Ky, you can carry in your car. Hopefully OH law will soon be the same.

    The law says where you can't carry They can post till cows come home all they can do is tell you to leave. If you don't then you will be in trouble. I haven't been to Keenland in couple years but last time I went I was packing.
