LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Churchill Downs wants to bring winter horse racing to the Bluegrass.
The company has filed an application with the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission to host a 2020 winter meet at Churchill Downs racetrack while building a new track in Northern Kentucky.
That $200,000,000 facility called New Latonia would include live and historical racing as well as a year-round training facility.
Churchill is asking for a racing license for January through March and December of 2020. The company says those race dates would later move to New Latonia.
