Churchill Downs promotes two


Churchill Downs in Louisville has elevated Ryan Jordan to general manager and Greg Bush to vice president of operations, the company announced Tuesday.

Jordan, 32, was appointed as general manager after serving as the vice president of operations in the company’s defunct Churchill Downs Entertainment Group, a wholly owned subsidiary that was shut down last year. Jordan had previously worked for the PGA of America. He will be responsible for Churchill’s “frontside and backside operations, racing office, staff, and ticket fulfillment operations,” the company said.

Bush, 50, has been Churchill senior director of operations since 2007, and was formerly the track’s director of operations. He has held a wide variety of management positions at tracks throughout the racing industry, mostly in the Midwest.
