Churchill Downs Reopens for 2020's First Live Spectators

Slightly less than two months after the Kentucky Derby ran on Sept. 5 without fans present for the first time in its lengthy history, the Churchill Downs racetrack, owned and operated by Churchill Downs (NASDAQ: CHDN), has opened again for a limited number of spectators. On Sunday, Churchill Downs' fall meet launched with box seats holding people for the first time in 2020, ABC's Louisville affiliate WHAS-TV reported. The general admission seating remained vacant, but the box seats were priced at general admission levels. Spectators filled out health questionnaires and underwent temperature checks, while safety rules required them to wear face masks. Churchill Downs spokesman Darren Rodgers said of Sunday's races that it is "nice to see the horses break from the gate and actually hear a roar from the crowd that's on hand as the horses come down the stretch."Image source: Getty Images.Continue reading
