Before significant renovations a couple of years ago, I considered Churchill Downs to be pretty much of a dump - dark, dreary and dirty inside. The renovations have significantly improved the cosmetic appearance of the place, but the changes come at a price for the consumer. Entrace fees are much higher and food and beverages are ridiculously expensive. Large crowds generate large amounts of trash, they don't do a very good job of keeping up with it. They market the track to fleece out of town customers, most natives like myself know better and spend our entertainment dollars elsewhere.
