Churchill Downs

Wiki info

Churchill Downs filled a void in Louisville left by the closing of Oakland and Woodlawn, two earlier race courses. The then-rural location was along Louisville and Nashville Railroad tracks, allowing for easy transport of horses. Clark, who preferred longer races to the relatively short ones that had become popular by the 1890s, was running short of funds, and in 1894 sold the track to a syndicate led by William E. Applegate. The new ownership would soon institute many changes, such as commissioning the famous twin spire grandstand in 1895, shortening the length of the signature race to its modern . mw-parser-output . frac{white-space:nowrap}. mw-parser-output . frac . num,. mw-parser-output . frac . den{font-size:80%;line-height:0;vertical-align:super}. mw-parser-output . frac . den{vertical-align:sub}. mw-parser-output . sr-only{border:0;clip:rect(0,0,0,0);height:1px;margin:-1px;overflow:hidden;padding:0;position:absolute;width:1px}1+1⁄4 miles (2. 0 km) in 1896, and adorning the winner of the Derby with a garland of roses, a tradition that also began in 1896.
