The Keeneland Association confirmed today that the Lexington-based racetrack will build a quarter horse racing track near Corbin.

While he did not discuss specifics, Keeneland Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer Vince Gabbert did confirm Friday morning a couple of locations south of Corbin along the Interstate 75  corridor were being looked at.
