As part of the ongoing charitable efforts of Churchill Downs racetrack to benefit the Louisville community, Churchill recently donated $5,000 to Harbor House of Louisville, an organization that provides high-quality training and care for adults with developmental disabilities.  The donation will be used by Harbor House to fund programs in conjunction with the Luci Center, a Shelbyville, Ky.-based therapeutic riding center for children and adults with disabilities.
