Kentucky Downs to hire new full-time turf course manager and groundskeeper

January 23, 2023

Kentucky Downs in Franklin, Ky., is looking for a full-time turf course manager and groundskeeper to oversee the year-round maintenance of the track’s grass course as well as care of the barn area and the facility’s outdoor areas.

Duties include the scheduling and managing of maintenance associates to complete maintenance duties of the racetrack and associated buildings and grounds, both on and off-season. The new hire will work closely with consultant Butch Lehr and Ted Nicholson, Kentucky Downs’ vice president for racing. The position includes full benefits, including health insurance, paid vacation and a 401K.

“We run only seven days a year, but we want the best turf course in America and that requires year-round attention,” Nicholson said. “We’re looking for someone who has track-maintenance experience, is hands-on, works well with people and will mentor the other team members on the track crew.”
