Churchill Downs Gets Approval For September Dates

Churchill Downs has been given the go-ahead to offer a third racing meet starting next year.

The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission voted Tuesday to give the track a third live racing meet in September.

The schedule will be added to Churchill's traditional spring and fall meets.

The 12 additional dates will be Churchill's first all-September meet since 1890. The dates have traditionally gone to Turfway Park in northern Kentucky.
