The Purpose of Construction at Churchill Downs:

Churchill Downs is currently constructing a reimagined Paddock to enhance the fan experience at the track by providing more seating and better views of the Paddock. Despite the construction, we want our fans to still enjoy the excitement of seasonal racing. If you're interested in learning more about the construction and being a part of the new experience for the 150th Kentucky Derby, please visit our landing page. Please look at the maps closely to identify areas that are under construction due to the new Paddock construction.
