Try your Luck in Louisville with Kentucky Horse Racing and Casino Gaming
If it’s risk you want and excitement you need, you’ll find both just a short distance from downtown Louisville. As the home of America’s most famous horse race, The Kentucky Derby, Louisville has been hosting high rollers since the first Run for the Roses in 1875.
Even if you can’t make it to the Kentucky Derby, you can always experience the thrill of Kentucky horse racing at Churchill Downs where stakes races are held throughout the year. During the off season, racing fans can take advantage of simulcast racing as well.
If table games call your name or slots are more your style, the nearby Horseshoe Casino is just a 20-minute drive along the scenic Ohio River from downtown Louisville.
