Earlier this week, I published a piece on the first ever race meeting at the Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky. Not long after posting the article, our friend Ron Micetic sent me two scans from the inaugural opening day program from his incredible collection of race programs. He kindly allowed me to share it here.
Below is the cover and the entries for the Keen Handicap, won by the brilliant filly Myrtlewood. She raced and won three times during the nine day inaugural meet.
Ron Micetic has an astounding collection of race programs and is actively seeking additions. If you have historic programs that you would like to sell, contact him at email@example.com. I’m sure he’d be happy to hear from you.
Thanks for reading and happy holidays!
