CHURCHILL DOWNS’ C.O.O. BILL CARSTANJEN TO BE FEATURED ON CBS’ HIT REALITY SERIES “UNDERCOVER BOSS” SUNDAY NIGHT AT 8 P.M. CT

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Tuesday, March 9, 2010) – Churchill Downs Incorporated chief operating officer Bill Carstenjen will be the featured subject Sunday night on CBS’s hit reality series “Undercover Boss” at 9 pm ET.

“Undercover Boss” follows high-level chief executives as they slip anonymously into the rank and file of their companies. Each week, a different executive leaves the comfort of their corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their company. While working alongside their employees, they often see the effects their decisions have on others, where potential problems lie within the organization, and get an up-close look at both the good and the bad while discovering the unsung heroes who make their company run.

Last summer, Carstanjen (pronounced car-STAN-jen) traveled to Churchill Downs Incorporated’s Calder Casino and Race Course in Miami and Arlington Park near Chicago to work on a variety of jobs over a 10-day period. He worked with a trainer in the stable area and learned how to care for a horse. Carstanjen also worked in the Jockey’s Quarters, with the track maintenance and housekeeping crews and even shadowed the track bugler.

“Being undercover meant the people I was working with side-by-side could speak frankly about their work,” Carstenjen said. “They talked about their personal sacrifices, health issues and time management, all while showing up every day for work with the same attitudes so many of us feel for this business – the passion, dedication and drive to get more fans to love the sport as much as we do.”

Other than the promotional clips airing on CBS, Carstanjen and other Churchill Downs Incorporated employees have not seen the episode, but plenty of humorous, enjoyable and raw-emotion moments are expected.

Stay tuned. “Undercover Boss” airs Sunday at 8 pm CT.
