When Corey Johnsen and Ray Reid took over Kentucky Downs in 2007, they were handed the reins of a track that had had financial problems and was little more than a blip on the radar when it came to the national racing scene. Today, Johnsen, the president and part-owner of Kentucky Downs, oversees a meet where the purses are huge, the takeout is low and the racing is so good that everyone is taking notice. Johnsen is this week’s guest on the Thoroughbred Daily News podcast, brought to you by Taylor Made.
