LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 30, 2017) — Churchill Downs Inc. will be adding about 70 high-tech jobs when the headquarters for TwinSpires relocates from Silicon Valley in California to Hurstbourne Parkway in Louisville, according to multiple media outlets.
TwinSpires is the official mobile betting partner for Churchill Downs Race Track, the Kentucky Derby and Breeders Cup. The company announced Tuesday it is investing $2.2 million to expand its offices at 600 N. Hurstbourne Parkway.
An announcement about the move was made Tuesday morning at the Churchill Downs Inc. offices with Governor Matt Bevin.
“Kentucky is now a place where you can bring high-tech jobs,” Gov. Bevin said.

The move will also create an additional 25 jobs in Kentucky by the end of the year, with annual salaries ranging between $75,000 and $110,000.
