LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Demolition got underway at Churchill Downs Wednesday as the historic track prepares to build a new venue.

Churchill Downs announced plans last month for a new grandstand terrace and garden venue. The $14.5 million dollar renovation will include nearly 2,400 new seats and a makeover of the existing grandstand seating.

The new venues will be ready by next year's Kentucky Derby and Oaks.
