About Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI)
CDI’s history is well known. Its namesake racetrack, Churchill Downs, in Louisville, Ky., opened in 1875 and during its inaugural race meeting featured two races, the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks, which still highlight Churchill Downs’ live racing calendar today.
Today, the Twin Spires still proudly reign over Churchill Downs’ homestretch, and Kentucky Derby champions race by these architectural features turned trademarks on their way to the finish line, the Winner’s Circle and the history books.
As the Kentucky Derby legacy has evolved over 130-plus years, so has CDI’s stable of businesses. The publicly traded company has evolved from one world-famous venue in Central Kentucky to the United States’ premier racing, gaming and entertainment company with a myriad of holdings.
CDI now employs more than 5,000 people and maintains physical operations in eleven states: California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, and Washington. Additional information on CDI properties can be found below:
