Churchill Downs opens Rosie’s Gaming Emporium in Virginia

27 September 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Churchill Downs Incorporated announced today the opening of the newest Rosie’s Gaming Emporium in Emporia, Virginia. Rosie's in Emporia is located on West Atlantic Street, convenient to Interstate 95 and features 150 Historical Racing Machines, simulcast horse racing, a restaurant and bar. The grand opening celebration demonstrated CDI’s commitment to community and the successful “Rosie’s Gives Back” program with a $25,000 donation to five local charities: the Family YMCA of Emporia/Greenville, Community Youth Center, Ltd, Emporia Greenville Recreation Association, Communities in Schools of Virginia and H.E.A.R Me Out Inc.

“This marks our seventh Rosie’s gaming property and adds to our tremendous success in Virginia, taking us to the Southern border of the state for the first time,” said Bill Carstanjen, CEO for CDI. “The Emporia location builds on CDI’s commitment to providing top-quality jobs and generating significant tax revenues across the Commonwealth while delivering quality entertainment.”

Rosie’s in Emporia will create more than 100 full and part-time jobs and generate approximately $1 million in annual tax revenue for the City of Emporia. Since the opening of the first Rosie’s five years ago, more than $400 million has been invested in Rosie’s and Colonial Downs across the Commonwealth of Virginia creating over 1,200 new jobs and now contributing $54 million a year in state and local tax revenue.
