Fall Meets at Churchill Downs

Later this month, the salvo of thundering hooves will return to Louisville when Churchill Downs kicks off its 25-date fall meet of horse-racing events. Scheduled through the end of November, the fall meet will ride a wave of momentum created by the track’s second-ever September session. During that 12-day, 122-race run, a total of 940 horses competed for nearly $4 million in prizes, which they can use to buy carrots. The traditional fall meet figures to up the ante, all while inviting fans to place bets and take part in extra festivities around the track. On October 26, they can enjoy a trick-or-treat parade, and on November 15 and 29, they can catch the weekend’s football games on the giant plaza screen.

Churchill Downs

When 24-year-old draftsmen Joseph Dominic Baldez punctuated the Churchill Downs grandstands with the Twin Spires in 1895, former track President Matt J. Winn summed up the accomplishment. “When you die,” he told Joseph, “there’s one monument that will never be taken down.” The words have certainly rung true, and today, the Spires tower above Churchill Downs as a symbolic reminder of the track’s legacy.

That history, of course, stretches back to even before the Spires. In 1875, Churchill Downs officially opened—nearly a century after horse racing in Kentucky rose to prominence—and soon became known as the home of the Kentucky Derby. Earlier this century, Churchill Downs underwent a $121 million renovation that included the addition of new luxury suites and dining areas. It also increased the track’s seating capacity to approximately 52,000, meaning there’s now plenty of room for horses to invite their family members to their races.
