BCM presents NKY History Hour: Old Latonia, America’s Most Beautiful Race Course

One of the top sites for horse racing in the country, Latonia Race Track welcomed more that 100,000 cheering fans from 1883-1939 with legendary race horses in Northern Kentucky.

Cam Miller, director and producer of the 2016 documentary Old Latonia: America’s Most Beautiful Race Course, will discuss the glory days of the Latonia Derby and how financial difficulties ultimately led to its closing, during the next NKY History Hour at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 28.
