    Churchill Downs Inc. is making moves.

    The company is investing $76 million into its Derby City Gaming facility, as well several upgrades to the racetrack itself.

    Derby City Gaming, located at 4520 Poplar Level Road, is planning a 135,000-square-foot expansion that includes a hotel, additional space for gaming, a restaurant and an entertainment stage.

    The projects aim to be complete in late 2022, early 2023.

    Derby City Gaming, which opened in 2018, features “historical horse racing” machines, which directly resemble slot machines.
