Every time I go to Churchill Downs I get excited and I don't even like betting! They have great food and it is fun to just watch the horses and people. Great place for a work gathering, as well.

I recommend you call the Musem. The Churchill Down Museum won't disappoint any first time visitors with all of its historical and present day information. The Musem is kept updated annually.
