Churchill is Down with Luxury

Nestled in an unexpected place is an unexpected luxury find: Churchill Downs in Kentucky. The home of the Kentucky Derby for the past 138 years is down with luxury–and revving up interest with plans to repave, reshape and revamp the racing venue and vibe! If you love luxury and racing, why not indulge in a bit of luxury racing, Southern style?

Design plans include The Mansion at Churchill Downs (located on the 6th floor of the expansive clubhouse), a venue blending the past and present of auto racing with panoramic views and concierge style services. It seems strange to name a single floor “the Mansion”…but who am I to judge? There will also be a new media center, relocation and renovation of the track’s Gold Room.

The Mansion at Churchill Downs is slated to be ready for the 2013 Spring Meet and 139th years of the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby. Dates for those events are May 3rd and 4th, if you are interested in attending.
