Since the 1960s, Sullivan Cozart has successfully completed numerous projects at the Keeneland race course and sales company.
Keeneland Sales Pavilion
Renovation of the sales pavilion consisted of installing new seats, enlarged press box, auctioneer stand and spotter booths, two new kitchens and the main dining room. The project also included the construction of a food court, repository for x-ray viewing, conference area and administrative offices.
Race Course Renovation
Extensive reconstruction and updates to the existing dirt track. The race track was updated to a new Polytrack surface. To replace the existing track with the new surface Sullivan Cozart configured the new track, added a new chute, installed a drainage and irrigation system, and added new electrical. Other track renovations included tunnel extension, construction of a high-tech tote board, enlarged patron area with retail center, and a new winner’s circle.
The project included renovation and addition to the existing historical building. The dining area was expanded, a dining terrace was added and the kitchen was completely replaced.
The horse path in front of the stone saddling stalls at the north end of the Paddock has been enlarged and an additional saddling ring is being created. Both paths feature rubber pavers. Keeneland’s preparations for the 2015 Breeders’ Cup World Championships are progressing on schedule as the facility is readied for the Oct. 30-31, 2015 event and the first time the track has hosted Thoroughbred racing’s year-end championship.
