Churchill Downs Starting Gate Suites
Horse racing in Kentucky dates back to 1789, when the first race course was constructed in Lexington. Almost 100 years later, in 1875, Churchill Downs officially opened its gates in Louisville, and began its tradition as “Home of the Kentucky Derby” and the longest continually running sporting event in America.
Calhoun Construction Services served as the Construction Manager and General Contractor for the expansion creating 36 new suites. The project included an addition of a new suite tower on top of the existing grandstand, new elevators, bars, and mutuels. The structure for the new tower is dropped through the grandstand and 2nd floor plaza. The project was completed while the track practiced every day and during three meets.
Derby City Gaming
Louisville Downs was a harness track that ran for about twenty five years.
Louisville Downs was the innovator of every promotional gimmick and multiple wagering format in Kentucky. When it closed in 1991 it was bought by Churchill Downs and was converted to a winter training facility for thoroughbreds.
Louisville Downs was the first track in Kentucky to provide phone wagering and full card simulcast wagering.
