Churchill Downs will host “Pigskins and Ponies” on Saturday! Last week’s Football Watch Party was popular with race-goers so track officials will bring it back for the final two Saturdays of the meet (Sept. 20 and Sept. 27).
Saturday's ACC doubleheader – Georgia Tech at Virginia (12 p.m.) and Louisville at Conference USA’s Florida International (3:30 p.m.) – will be shown uninterrupted with volume on the giant 16’ x 20’ Plaza video screen. Also, there’ll be drink specials in the Plaza all day ($2 Bud/Bud Light, $3 Stella Artois, $1 Pepsi products and bottled water), and the Plaza grill will be cooking up some tasty fare.
College students with a current student ID will be admitted free of charge on Saturday. Paid general admission is $3.
The same event will return Saturday, Sept. 27 for the Vanderbilt at Kentucky (12 p.m.) and Wake Forest at U of L (3:30 p.m.) games.
