Churchill Downs Seeks To Sell Fair Grounds

Churchill Downs Inc. (NasdaqGS:CHDN) is seeking to sell Fair Grounds. Multiple sources familiar with the situation said on September 12, 2014 that Churchill Downs which has owned the Fair Grounds plus its 11 off-track betting facilities since 2004, has enlisted JPMorgan Chase to solicit requests for proposals from other gaming interests around the country, with a deadline of September 17, 2014. Also, The Duchossois Group, Churchill Downs' largest stockholder, has been approached about a deal for the Fair Grounds plus Arlington Park. However, a source with knowledge of Duchossis’ plans said that such a deal is unlikely to happen at this point. The requests for proposals came after at least two local interests, including Saints owner Tom Benson, made inquiries in recent weeks about purchasing the track, but they reportedly found the asking price, estimated at $125 million, too high.
