After years of rejecting plans to install historical racing machines at its facility, Churchill Downs Inc., officials will request permission to operate the machines at Tuesday's Kentucky Horse Racing Commission meeting.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that the historical racing machines are one of several items on the agenda to be discussed at the meeting. The KHRC is scheduled to meet Tuesday afternoon at the Kentucky Horse Park.

It isn't clear at this time whether the machines will be installed at Churchill Downs or at another property owned by Churchill, such as the former Sports Spectrum, the training center and former off-track betting parlor located on Poplar Level Road in Louisville.
