Churchill Downs reported its attendance dropped 3.2% and wagering fell 6.5% for the spring meet that just ended.

Track officials said the continuing downward trend is the result of a Riverboat casino that opened in Southern Indiana.

”It’s like waves on the shore,” said John Asher, vice president of racing communications. “It takes a little bit of the beach with it each time.”
