The 2018 Legacy Ball is racing toward the horizon! Be our guest for the only Derby Weekend event in Lexington that celebrates the rich diversity of Kentucky’s horse racing history. The ball is a night of elegance, fine food, entertainment, simulated betting and bourbon in an exclusive venue, The Woodford Reserve Room at Kroger Field.
Legacy Ball proceeds benefit racially diverse local students with scholarships to in-state Universities. Last year we raised more than $40,000 in scholarship funds and started local equine education for grade school children.
“We are very proud to join Legacy Ball 2018 as a participating sponsor of this year’s event during Kentucky Derby week,” said Craig Fravel, Breeders’ Cup President and CEO. “The Legacy Ball’s heritage of honoring the contributions of African Americans in Thoroughbred racing combined with the Legacy Equine Academy’s mission of connecting a racially diverse community of youngsters to become active participants in the racing’ industry, are common goals that we gladly support.”
All sponsor funding / donations qualify as a 501(c)3 IRS deduction.
