Owensboro, Ky. (March 29, 2016) – With the annual “Run for the Roses” right around the corner, Kentucky Wesleyan College is getting a jump on racing season by hosting an April event at Keeneland in Lexington, followed by an appearance at historic Churchill Downs in Louisville for “Downs After Dark” this summer. 

Wesleyan will be in Louisville on Saturday, June 18, for Downs After Dark, the wildly-successful nighttime racing series Churchill Downs launched in the spring of 2009, which includes live music and racing under the lights, beginning at 6 p.m. EDT.  Tickets are $45 each and include reserved seating on Millionaire’s Row, Chef’s Table Buffet, non-alcoholic beverages and racing program.  A cash bar will be available.  Gates open at 5 p.m. EDT.
