In this Tuesday, May 2, 2017 photo, the Champions Lounge outdoor seating area, part of the ongoing renovations at Churchill Downs, provides an impressive view of the paddock and the walking ring at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. Churchill Downs' parent company has pumped $250 million into renovations since the early 2000s. But many have catered to well-heeled fans willing to shell out thousands of dollars for panoramic views, sumptuous buffets, access to betting windows and restrooms without lines, and demand outpaces available seating. That's leaving the middle class squeezed out. (AP Photo/Garry Jones)
