(WHAS 11)--For the first time since the 1980's there will be racing in September at Churchill Downs.
It will run over the next four weeks12 days, on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
Churchill Downs says it's an investment into the local thoroughbred industry and could keep some local horsemen from leaving for out of state races during the summers.
September 7 is college rivalry night during Downs after Dark.
Each fan that passes through the admission gate will be asked which college they support and the one with the most votes will get money for scholarships.
