Churchill Downs - Review

The Churchill Downs is the official race track used for the famous Kentucky Derby and is loved for its sheer energy, grandeur and impeccable Fashion (on special derby days) seen during the derby matches.

When in Louisville, catching a live derby match here is a must as you appreciate the dedication, love for the sport and spectacular trained horses. If you don’t have time for a match, a tour of the historic race track is also well worth the time.

Churchill Downs, Louisville Reviews

  • Parking was free and easy to access. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food at the buffet in millionaire's row was hot, fresh, and tasty, but the selection was limited. Our server was friendly, helpful, and always on the spot. Easy access to betting windows. We were able to stand outside right at the finish line to view the races. The biggest disappointment of the night the was time it took to get out of the parking lot. I can get out of the parking garage after a performance at The Kentucky Center for the Arts faster than I could here.

  • Had an excellent experience. I had the privilege of being seated on millionaire's row area and had access to an a good lunch. The only complaint is that I have attended an event in this area for the past three years. Although the food id good unfortunately it has been the same menu each time. The staff on hand are wonderful and have done all they could to assure I have a great experience. I will definitely return.

  • First time ever to the Downs tonight. It can be a little overwhelming at first but the staff are quick to stop and answer any question and help in any way they can. Not as expensive as you would think on most things but you definitely have to be careful at what you're looking at, some prices will surprise you. The stadium is kept clean and there are plenty of places to cool off if you need to. Will definitely be making the Downs a regular place to visit.

  • The track does night races and it is a lot of fun. The gates open at 5, the first race is not till at 6. Live band, food trucks and people everywhere. As the night falls, it gets more exciting, great place to meet up with friends and kick off Saturday night. There is free parking at the downs but you will have to get their early to find a spot. They have courtesy shuttles running to take you to the gate if you are parked far.

  • What a fun experience! It’s my first time going to Churchill so I was a bit intimidated by what to wear. I know, it’s a girl thing. The “track casual” isn’t very specific. Go comfortable! Especially in the footwear department. I ended up with HUGE blisters on my feet and had to buy flip flops that were 3 sizes too Small :) With that being said- we had tickets in Millionaire Row. It’s a large ballroom with tables, a buffet & bar. You can also place your bets there as well. There is an outdoor area there so you can step out and watch the races if you wish. Be sure you walk down to The Paddock area and view the beautiful horses and go trackside to feel the thunder as they race by. It’s an awesome experience! Great history and a beautiful place.
