Kentucky Derby

Louisville, Kentucky, United States

We were involved in assisting Churchill Downs with planning leading up to the 2015 Kentucky Derby. We assisted in improving the guest experience with respect to arrivals, crowd flow and entry. In addition, the Populous team worked with Churchill Downs to provide site and event drawings, integrated event and operations plans for 2016. Our relationship with the esteemed track extends to other projects including its new Starting Gate Suites as well as a $4.2-million renovation to the 140-year-old facility that created 20 private open-air Winner’s Circle Suites, remodeled the trackside Winner’s Circle and created a new courtyard to accommodate temporary premium seating for Derby week.
