Email

The latest capital project at Churchill Downs is nearing completion and will be ready in time for the spring meet, which opens April 30. The $18 million renovation encompasses an overhaul of the Turf Club, stakes room, directors room, and other premium seating locations.

Meanwhile, the Churchill stable area will reopen Monday after the usual winter closure, with the racetrack open for training no later than next Saturday.

Churchill also announced recently that Coady Photography will be the new track photographer, replacing Reed Palmer Photography, which served the track for 10 years.
