Churchill Downs to build Rooftop Garden

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Packing the track with even more fans -- that's the idea behind a new renovation plan at Churchill Downs.

The track filed plans with city planning officials for a project called Churchill Downs Rooftop Garden.  It calls for the construction of a two-story building near the starting gate.

The new facility would include betting windows, concessions, and more seating.  Churchill would have to tear down two existing buildings to build the new one.

Vice President of Communications John Asher says talking about the plan is premature because it's still in the very early stages.
