What is to become of the racetrack now since it is going to be shut down? Will someone else take it over and run it?

I live in hardin county and usually make a couple trips a year to the track. I heard the ferrells left, and was wondering if the owner was gonna find someone else to promote it or if they are really going to shut its doors for good.

While the facilities are great, the track itself needs some work. If they could find some good dirt without any rocks bardstown would be one of the best tracks in the country in my opinion. But as it stands now, the dirt they have cant be tilled to let the water into the track because of all the rocks. If hamilton would spend some of his money on the track and find a new promotor this track would be a huge money maker for him.

Yea you are right Russell! That is the problem. Hamilton won't spend the money, and fill in the track, and david and anita won't run it without fixing, hell, nobody will. They are the ones who have to take the crap from the drivers. I have been on that track this year and certain places on it will knock your wheels off. I am afraid that if it doesnt open next spring it wont ever open again. Nothing will please dean watts more than that.

I have always wondered what some of the politicians (i think, dont know who the bardstown politians are) had against the track? I had heard some of them didnt want the track there for some reason. I always thought it brought in quite a bit of money to the area hotels and resturants. Dont see how the track could be a bad thing.

I dont think it is that dean dont like the track, its that he and david DONT get along. David is a good old boy and wants to line his own pocket. this year with all the rain, I am sure he didnt come out rich

Well, with david gone maybe the politicians will leave the track alone if hamiltion decideds to keep it open. I am gonna hate having to drive all the way to the pond just to watch some dirt racing.

The place isint for sale. If hamilton dont open it back up next year, he will just fence it all off and let his horses run on it.
