Shareholder Pass Program

Churchill Downs Incorporated offers two complimentary passes, good for free general admission to any Churchill Downs-owned or operated racetrack or off-track betting facility, to shareholders of record who own at least 100 shares of CDI stock (NASDAQ: CHDN) as of Dec. 31 of each year.

How do I qualify for Shareholder Passes?

To be eligible to receive shareholder passes, you must own at least 100 shares of CHDN stock on Dec. 31 of each year. During the following first quarter of the year, we will send two passes per household to our eligible shareholders of record. Eligible shareholders who hold CDI stock certificates in their own name should receive their passes automatically during the first quarter of the year.

Eligible shareholders whose stock certificates are held by their brokers in "street names" will also receive their passes automatically, if they are classified by their respective brokerage firms as "non-objecting beneficiary owners" ("NOBO").

Eligible shareholders who have not received Shareholder Passes through one of the means explained above, may contact the CDI's Shareholder Pass Services at (502) 638-3950 to receive their complimentary passes. Shareholders must present proof of ownership and eligibility (own at least 100 CHDN shares as of Dec. 31) before their passes will be processed and mailed to them.

What do Shareholder Passes entitle me to?

The passes allow free general admission at all our racing and off-track betting facilities. They are valid for an unlimited number of visits during the year as well as general admission for the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.  The passes, however, are NOT VALID for the Breeders' Cup World Championships when they are held at CDI venues or any other special event conducted at a CDI racetrack.

Shareholder passes do not provide the bearers with complimentary reserved seating.  Also, Shareholder Passes do not guarantee standing-room only access to reserved seating areas. Shareholders interested in reserved seating - or access to premium areas - at Churchill Downs Incorporated facilities should make arrangements through the admissions department of the racetrack or off-track betting facility they plan to visit.

Churchill Downs Incorporated shareholder passes are no longer valid for general admission at Ellis Park, Hollywood Park or Hoosier Park, as those tracks are no longer owned and operated by Churchill Downs Incorporated.
