CDI launches “Churchill Downs” the magazine

Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) (NASDAQ: CHDN) announced today it has launched a print and online publication that gives customers and fans a provocative and inside look into thoroughbred racing and its iconic events. 

Self-titled Churchill Downs, the magazine’s first edition hits homes April 16, and focuses on the most exciting two minutes in sports, the Kentucky Derby, along with the individuals who help make thoroughbred racing in the Spring happen.

“All of us at Churchill Downs hope this magazine offers a unique and interesting perspective on horse racing,” said Bill Carstanjen, CDI’s Chief Executive Officer. “In today’s quick news cycle, sometimes the most interesting aspects of this historic sport are overlooked. We believe fans of thoroughbred racing will appreciate and enjoy a publication that offers the ‘inside scoop’ on all aspects of horse racing.”

The magazine is produced by Blue Equity Publishing, LLC. Two additional issues are planned for later this year.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Churchill Downs Incorporated in designing and publishing their new magazine.  We are committed to producing a first-rate publication with exciting, innovative and meaningful content and design,” said Tracy A. Blue, Publisher of Blue Equity Publishing, LLC.

The magazine will be available online starting April 16 at:
www.churchilldownsincorporated.com/cdmagazine;
www.churchilldowns.com; and
www.kyderby.com.

Individuals may also request a copy or inquire about advertising in future issues by calling 502-636-4855 or emailing cdmagazine@kyderby.com
