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 served as the Construction Manager for the 2017 2nd floor renovation project. This project included mass demolition and reconstruction of the second floor restaurant, food service areas, bars and off track betting area.
"Calhoun has been a great partner to Churchill Downs. From preconstruction through final project delivery, the entire team is engaged in making sure that our projects are completed on time and within budget. Calhoun does a great job of working around our busy events schedule and ensuring that our business is not interrupted any more than necessary as a result of the ongoing renovations. I would highly recommend that you consider Calhoun for your upcoming projects.";
