At Churchill Downs, Edwards will oversee the development and implementation of marketing, branding, and social media strategies for Churchill Downs' live racing meets.
The decision to revise the qualifying process for the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) was a track decision and was not submitted to the Churchill Downs, Inc. board for approval, president Kevin Flanery said.
Churchill Downs announced it has partnered with TwinSpires.com to offer guaranteed Pick 6 pools for the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) and Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I).
Churchill Downs announced April 25 that advance-deposit wagering companies TwinSpires.com and Youbet.com, Inc. will offer the Churchill Downs signal for the racetrack's 2009 spring meet.
Youbet.com will carry the Calder Race Course signal for the live meet beginning April 24, saying the move is another building block on "continued cooperation" between parent company Churchill Downs Inc. and the advance deposit wagering entity.
Calder Race Course has announced another major cut in purses and the cancellation of eight $100,000 stakes races. The track, in a release, said it was trimming overnight purses by 17% effective Sept. 18.
