The diversification evident of the new CEO since '06 is making this issue not really all about horses but about modern gaming and how a tried and true company with a LOOONG history and world renown moniker can parlay that into success in other places. I like the most recent earnings evidence and I like the picture for a forward thinking company like these folks seem to be evidencing. Bullish to $50 and then re-evaluating OR content to ride this for a few percentage points up while the REAL evidence that the overall economy is in no WAY as healthy as our fearless leaders are trying to let on.

A silent but favored longshot play of the rich and famous.Sport of Kings in Kentucky where the real longshots lay in wait. Run for the Roses around $26 to $30 could make the decade ,unseen ,middle of the field down the back stretch, splitting rivals to surprise by a nose at the wire in a photo finish paying off a $100 on a masterfully brilliant top jock ride ,or just sell it at $55 on it's 2011 market ride.

If the simulcasting dilema continues and CHDN doesn't give the Horsemen their fair share of the simulcasting proceeds, this stock will continue to go down. Without the simulcasting CHDN will underperform. Stockholders should be made aware of this dilema. Also, if CHDN keeps trying strong arm tactics, such as cutting purses in an attempt to break the Horsemen, they'll be setting themselves up for a lot of grief. Owners and Trainers are already moving horses to different tracks to run for better purse structures. If CHDN doesn't do the right thing, things are going to get worse!

As a homestate pick and host of the media powerhouse known globally as simply The Derby, Churchill Downs is a quiet and seasonal pick. The track is currently undergoing substantial renovations and will soon be looking better than ever - not mention in the next few weeks The Derby will be run. The Company also owns several other successful tracks nationwide, which adds to the value of the shares beyond the Kentucky Derby's home.

Do you know anyone who bets on the horses anymore?

Shortterm, I expect them to miss expectations.

I wonder if this is a longterm asset play though. They sold Hollywood park for 250M while only decreasing book asset value by 150M.

Also, it could be a turnaround play if those slot machines ever get installed like they hope.

Anyway, in the short term I think we're headed down. Horsey revenue isn't growing.

Very low PE. Seems like a great value play.
