KENTUCKY DERBY GALA
We invite you to join us for the first annual Kentucky Derby Benefit Gala to raise money for the majestic steeds that make events like the Kentucky Derby so special. Join us as we watch the iconic 145th Kentucky Derby while enjoying cocktails, dinner, auctions, friendly competitions, and more. This gala will help offset the expenses associated with the care, training, and operational costs of each horse in our facility.
**Each horse costs about $8,000 to maintain per year. These costs include; grain, hay, farrier fees, veterinarian fees, facility maintenance, and taxes.
