Horses Racing

Join us at the historic Churchill Downs for an unforgettable night of horse racing on April 27, 2024! As the gates open and the horses thunder onto the track, you’ll feel the excitement and energy of one of the most prestigious racing events in the world.

As the sun sets over the iconic Twin Spires, experience the thrill of watching some of the fastest and most talented horses compete for glory in a series of races. From young up-and-comers to seasoned veterans, each horse will be vying for their chance to cross that finish line first.

The atmosphere at Churchill Downs is unlike any other. The sound of hooves pounding against the dirt, the cheers from the crowd as their chosen horse makes a move, and the anticipation as they round that final turn – it’s an experience that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

But it’s not just about racing at Churchill Downs. It’s also about fashion, tradition, and Southern charm. Get dressed up in your finest attire and join in on the timeless tradition of sipping on a mint julep while taking in all of the action. And don’t forget to try some delicious Southern cuisine while you’re here – from hot browns to burgoo stew, there’s something for every palate
