Feb 10, 2021

Churchill Downs Incorporated
released the following statement regarding the Senate’s passage of Senate Bill
120, legislation to keep historical horse racing in Kentucky:

“We applaud the Senate
for advancing legislation to keep historical horse racing in Kentucky and thank
Senator Schickel and Senate President Stivers for their leadership in moving
this legislation forward. We are also grateful for the thousands of Kentuckians
who have reached out to their elected officials and encouraged them to support
Senate Bill 120. Their personal stories of how the horse industry has impacted
them and their families matter, are being heard and are making a difference.

Historical horse
racing has been part of Kentucky for nearly a decade and during that time has
become an integral part of our sport and the horse industry overall. It has
made our racing circuit competitive with other states and has allowed us to
invest in our communities here in the Commonwealth, leading to new jobs,
tourism and economic development.

Now, we’re urging our
legislators in the House to pass Senate Bill 120 so we can continue to move
Kentucky’s economy forward. The thousands of individuals and families who make
up Kentucky horse racing and our equine industry are counting on you.”
