Nothing better than watching races at Churchhill Downs. Love the food truck nights. Night racing is so fun. Love coming here.

I’ve been to the derby in 2016, and I came and did the tour this year. Makes me reminisce about the fun we had at the derby and the tour teaches you about the history of the derby. The movie they made was fantastic. Now I want to go to the derby again.

We only saw the outside facade and entrance gate to Churchill Downs- did not enter gate. We pulled up to the front and parked....took photos... very busy place. I was shocked to see that the facility was located so close to adjacent neighborhoods. Please stop by Churchill Downs.

Glad we made the effort and detour to see the iconic site. Lots of construction and commotion but well worth the stop!
