SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY: The DAILY RACING FORM’s Marty McGee wrote project “will attempt to mimic a lavish southern-style mansion replete with amenities such as a dining room with a gourmet chef, a library, a private bar, and a private elevator, not to mention a balcony that affords a spectacular finish-line view of the racetrack.” Flanery added that the facility will seat “at least 320 people, with ‘customized’ seating costs that would vary by a number of factors that he declined to specify” (DRF.com, 7/31). The THOROUGHBRED TIMES’ Frank Angst noted guests at The Mansion “will have access to a private wine cellar, as well as a personal concierge service.” Churchill Downs is “contacting potential patrons of [the track] with details of the amenities and personalized service” (THOROUGHBREDTIMES.com, 7/31).
