The Horse Capital of the World is the place to be, on May 4, 2018, for The Legacy Ball. This red carpet event will celebrate the historic contributions of African-American jockeys and trainers to the equine industry.

The Legacy Ball will be held in the luxurious Woodford Reserve Club in the University of Kentucky Commonwealth Stadium; where our special guests will enjoy the finest food, and of course, Kentucky Bourbon.

The proceeds of this chic and culturally-enriching affair will benefit local charities and scholarships for African-American students who aspire to pursue equine education.

Since it’s derby weekend, come dressed in your best cocktail attire. “We can’t wait to see you there!”


Event Hosted by Jack Givens
