KENTUCKY DERBY-WAGERING
Churchill Downs: All-sources wagering on Kentucky Derby race card ties all-time record

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, May 5, 2014 10:08 AM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Churchill Downs says total wagering on this year's Kentucky Derby race card tied an all-time record.

On-track wagering on the Derby and the day's entire race program at the track were higher than a year ago.

The figures show the world's most famous horse race remains a cash cow for the track's parent company.

California Chrome won the Run for the Roses on Saturday. The race drew a crowd of 164,906, the second-largest in the Derby's 140-year history.

Churchill Downs says wagering from all-sources on the Derby race card totaled $186.6 million, tying the record set in 2012.

On-track wagering on the Derby program reached $23.4 million, up 11 percent from last year.

Churchill Downs Inc. Chairman and CEO Robert L. Evans says Derby week is a key to the company's growth.
