Churchill Downs to Host Breeders Cup 2010

Finally we’re getting to update State of the Commonwealth, after computer issues the past few days. And in our first update there’s the good news that Churchill Downs will host its seventh Breeders Cup in the fall of 2010 (from a Courier-Journal article that’s light on details):

The Breeders’ Cup World Championships will return to Churchill Downs in 2010, officials from both organizations confirmed this morning at a news conference.

Churchill will play host the cup for the record seventh time and the first time since Breeders’ Cup went to a two-day format last year. The event will take place Nov. 5-6of that year.

If you’ll recall, Churchill was claiming last year that the Breeders Cup when held at there didn’t typically earn more revenue than any other racing Saturday during the Fall Meet. Yeah, right, sure, that’s believable. Anyway, we’re glad that the event is coming back to Louisville.
