As the former Dueling Grounds Race Course, Kentucky Downs offers a short annual race meet, year-round simulcast wagering and in the summer of 2011 was the first Kentucky racetrack to add historical racing machines, also known as "instant racing games" to its customer offerings. The track is located near the Kentucky and Tennessee border, about 40 miles from Nashville. A distinctive feature of the facility is that all of its racing is conducted on a European-style, 1 5/16-mile turf course. CDI has held a minority interest in Kentucky Downs since 1997.
