Gaming at Churchill Downs

Churchill Downs is the home of the Kentucky Derby. Racing Thursday-Sunday and simulcast betting is available 7 days a week year round. The annual Spring Meet generally runs from April 25th to June 27th, give or take a day or two either way.

Even if you can't get one of the 150,000+ seats for the legendary Run for the Roses, any true equestrian fan should visit this venue at least once in their lifetime. It's race day, so dress the part!
