Churchill Downs Inc. One Of Few Public Companies Still Offering Perks To Shareholders

While investors "have to search a little harder these days to find shareholder freebies and discounts," Churchill Downs Inc. still "gives shareholders two season passes for general admission to any of its tracks, including Churchill Downs (Kentucky Derby day included), Arlington Park in Illinois, Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans and Calder Racecourse Miami," according to Liz Moyer of the WALL STREET JOURNAL. The passes "get holders access to the infield and paddock, but not the seating areas in the grandstand," and since the different tracks "operate on different seasonal schedules, it's possible to use the two free passes to access Churchill-owned facilities all year." The benefit in dollar terms of a "general-admission adult pass to the namesake Churchill Downs racetrack is $3 a day, adding up to $1,095 a year if the holder visited the track every single day" (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/14).
