Turfway Park Pilots Substance Abuse Program

Turfway Park will begin piloting a substance abuse program for licensed racetrack workers next year, which officials hope can extend to other tracks around the state. “That’s our intent is to have a program in place that will be effective at all the racetracks in Kentucky,” said Richard Riedel, executive director of the Kentucky Health and Welfare Fund, which is paying the $5,000 cost to pilot the program.
