Churchill Downs, in Louisville, Ky., opened in 1875 and during its inaugural race meeting featured two races, the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks, which still highlight the Churchill Downs live racing calendar today. The Kentucky Derby, run on the first Saturday of May each year, upholds more than a century of grand tradition. Today, the Twin Spires still proudly reign over Churchill Downs as trademarks of Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) and its properties. As the Kentucky Derby legacy has evolved over 130-plus years, so has CDI’s stable of businesses. The publicly traded company has evolved into the a premier racing, gaming and entertainment company with a myriad of holdings, including: Churchill Downs Race Track, TwinSpires.com, Harlow's Casino Resort and Hotel,
Calder Casino & Race Course, Fair Grounds Race Course & Casino, Arlington Park, United Tote, Bluff Media and a collection of racing-related data, totalisator and telecommunication companies that support CDI's sports and gaming operations.
Much has changed since that first Kentucky Derby Day in 1875, but one thing hasn’t: our commitment to building a vibrant and profitable company that is valued by our customers, investors, employees and business and community partners for generations to come. After more than a century of growth and progress, the Churchill Downs Incorporated story continues. We encourage you to discover the next chapter with us!
