  • Greatest race track ever! People are friendly and helpful. There's always a party atmosphere and the people are beautiful and you can even win some cash. Grab your sunglasses and your bff and go make a day out of it.

  • Always wanted to visit Churchill Downs. It was a very cold day and there was a lot of construction going on but the information and visit was good. Huge place. Got to see a film. The screen went all around the room as you sit on stools so you can turn to view it all. Also had a reindeer race where we made bets with play money to show us the process. Fun time.

  • We went on a tour of the famous horse track and it was very informative and fun. It's a tour you can take the whole family on. There were no races at the time so I will have to go back again. I also would love to see the derby there, but that will have to wait. It is such a historical place to visit. The museum is pretty good too.

  • The excitement, the intrigue, the horses, the history, the beautiful women! It’s an experience you MUST have in your life! The Kentucky Derby is of course what it’s most notorious for, but with that comes the day before- The Kentucky Oaks. So many ways to enjoy them- from The Infield, to The Owners Boxes, Front side, Back side- but stay in control, NOBODY wants to watch from the ‘inside’! Founded in a city that loves their horses and traditions, Churchill Downs is a ‘Bucket List’ top 5!!

  • AMAZING. The museum was impressive, large, and has a state of the art unique movie screen that is in a large oval circulating the room. Got to see two races on the tracks. The place as a whole is incredible and worth the hype. The restaurant food is pretty yummy. Of course we had to try their mint julip, wow that was strong. Also tried their mule which was made with bourbon and was not bad. Staff from restaurant, the track, the museum, were all so nice.
