Churchill Downs completes acquisition of Chasers Poker Room

12 September 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) completed its previously-announced purchase of Chasers Poker Room in Salem, New Hampshire. The purchase of Chasers follows the approval of the transaction by the New Hampshire Lottery Commission.

Chasers, which offers poker and a variety of table games, is located approximately 30 minutes from downtown Boston. CDI plans to construct an expanded charitable gaming facility in Salem, with up to 800 gaming positions, including historical racing machines (HRMs) and table games. CDI expects the total investment in Salem, inclusive of the purchase price, to be approximately $150 million.

“We are excited to build upon the success of Chasers with CDI’s proven excellence in historical horse racing operations and a state-of-the-art new facility,” said Bill Carstanjen, Chief Executive Officer of CDI. “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to meaningfully support nonprofits in New Hampshire as the leading gaming operator in charitable contributions.”

New Hampshire will be the fourth state in which CDI will operate historical horse racing. CDI currently operates HRMs in Kentucky and in Louisiana. CDI will also operate HRMs in Virginia upon closing of the pending acquisition of Peninsula Pacific Entertainment.
