05/06/2017 02:59 PM

Churchill Downs recently completed its renovation of some parts of its legendary Clubhouse.

And Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is a fan.

“It’s stunning. It’s beautiful,” said Gov. Matt Bevin. “It’s a first-class institution. It’s a first-class company. And the way in which they have continued every year to make this event even better and better for the guests that come is spectacular.”

There are so many new aspects to the Clubhouse, including new bars and lounges, but one thing stands out to Gov. Bevin.

“Just the way they’ve widened some of the hallways where people can move through,” said Gov. Bevin. “It’s just made it a lot more open and airy and accessible.”
