UofL, Churchill Downs join forces during derby week
A partnership between the University of Louisville and Churchill Downs Inc. will give horse racing fans a dose of Cardinal team spirit when they visit the track during derby week.
The agreement gives UofL exhibit space at the famed track to showcase recent accomplishments and to host meet-and-greet sessions with university representatives.
From April 27 through May 2, race-goers can visit a free interactive exhibit that includes trophies from the 2013 NCAA men’s championship basketball game, women’s runner-up game and the men’s football team victory in the 2013 All State Sugar Bowl.
The partnership also includes two UofL-sponsored races: the University of Louisville President’s Cup on April 27 and the Louisville Cardinal Classic on May 2.
