Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Churchill Downs

You know about the twin spires and the bugler, and maybe you've heard about a certain thoroughbred race they host every year… but do you know how many mint juleps they serve, that the KY State Fair was once held there, or how many landscapers it takes to keep Churchill Downs looking pristine? This Tuesday we'll talk with John Asher from Churchill Downs who will take us behind the scenes with some trivia you may not have known about Louisville’s famous racetrack.
