Churchill Downs Incorporated (NasdaqGS:CHDN) has announced that the Churchill Downs Racetrack is celebrating its upcoming 150th Kentucky Derby by highlighting the rich history of the iconic race at the five-day Royal Ascot race meet that concludes Saturday. According to the press release, fans are able to experience the traditions of the Kentucky Derby "through an experiential activation in the Queen Anne Enclosure," with signature Mint Juleps," and see "the Kentucky Derby trophy on display and photograph themselves among a rose-filled backdrop". Casey Ramage, Vice President of Marketing and Partnerships at Churchill Downs Racetrack, commented:

"We are thrilled to highlight the Kentucky Derby internationally at Royal Ascot. Our storied history was inspired by English horse racing, so to begin celebrating our 150th anniversary at Ascot Racecourse is a meaningful honor."

Academy Sports and Outdoors, Inc. (NasdaqGS:ASO) has announced further store expansion with the opening of its first two locations in Greater Indianapolis this fall. This will include the approximately 75,000-square-foot store in Westfield-Carmel, and the approximately 60,000-square-foot store in Avon, the company's fifth and sixth stores in the state, respectively. Academy has also signed a multi-year deal to serve as a Proud Partner of the Indianapolis Colts, which will see the two organizations collaborate on "fun community events, social media, digital content, and more to enhance both the fan and customer experience." Roger VanDerSnick, Indianapolis Colts' chief sales and marketing officer, said:

"The Indianapolis Colts are very excited to welcome Academy Sports + Outdoors to Indianapolis and help introduce them to our community. This new partnership will support our mission of entertaining, inspiring, and uniting our fans with a brand that brings fun experiences both on and off the field."

Buffalo Bills Sign Head Coach and GM Contract Extensions Through 2027, and Mets and Phillies will Play London Next Season

The Buffalo Bills announced today that they have signed head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane to contract extensions lasting through the 2027 season, according to Sportsnet. McDermott and Beane have been with the Bills for the past six seasons, with the former boasting a 62-35 record, leading the Bills to three consecutive AFC East division titles, and four straight playoff appearances. Bills owner Terry Pegula commented:

"Sean is a proud, Christian, determined man. I remember before his interview for the Bills head coaching job thinking about him being a two-time national prep wrestling champ. I thought to myself, you wrestled, you're determined, you love what you're doing, and you won. He comes to the Bills every day and will never ask anyone, player or coach, to do anything he wouldn't do."

The Associated Press reports that the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies will be playing a two-game series in London next season. The June 8-9 games at London Stadium were confirmed by MLB commissioner Rob Manfred today. Manfred added:

"We are in the process of working on Paris in 2025. We're not at the point where we're going to make a commitment or make a formal announcement but it is in the planning stages and was part of the general program that was laid out in the basic agreement."
