Events at Churchill Downs
Covering 147 acres and with a 51,000 seating capacity this premier thoroughbred racetrack needs no special introduction. Located in the heart of Bluegrass Country the Churchill Downs is home to the world renowned Kentucky Derby. The late Barbaro is the defending champion of the Kentucky Derby. Louisville Kentucky is a who’s who in May during the Derby. The likes of Kid Rock, Pamela Anderson, Michael Jordan and many other celebrities can be seen in premier seating. Because of standing room only admissions during the Kentucky Derby, crowds bypass the 51,000 seating capacity to a whopping 140,000 spectators.
The Churchill Downs hosted the Breeder’s Cup on six occasions. Invasor took the victory in the most recent running of the Breeder’s Cup at Churchill Downs in ‘06. Indulge in one of five fine dining areas near every seat throughout Churchill Downs. Great seating is also attainable during other premier events throughout the year. When you catch sight of the twin spires atop the grandstand seats you know you are about to witness the best that thoroughbred racing has to offer. If you are lucky enough to attend the Derby, take a seat and a deep breath and you may actually witness the next Triple Crown winner.
