Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Derby Trophies Presentation Saturday Night at CD


By Dick Downey with additional content from Churchill Downs

Team Orb will be presented with engraved Kentucky Derby trophies on Saturday night during Churchill Downs' big Stephen Foster program.

Engraved trophies earned by the Kentucky Derby winning owner, trainer, jockey and breeder. They'll be presented after race 4 of "Downs After Dark."
Shug McGaughey and Joel Rosario are expected, along with Daisy Phipps Pulito, daugher of Dinny Phipps. She'll accept the owner's and breeder's trophies for Phipps Stable and Stuart S. Janney III.

The fourth race has a post time of 7:26 ET. Post time for the evening’s first race is 6:00. Admission gates will open at 4:00
The solid gold Kentucky Derby winner’s trophy is presented during ceremonies in the Derby Winner’s Circle in the infield pagoda immediately following the race, but it's returned to Churchill Downs for the engraving of the names of the winning horse and owner. The owner gets that one. Smaller sterling silver versions of the winner’s trophy are presented to the winning trainer, jockey and breeder, and those newly engraved trophies also will be presented Saturday.
McGaughey, 62, is a native of Lexington, Ky., and Rosario is a 28-year-old native of the Dominican Republic. Both experienced their first Derby success aboard the son of Malibu Moon.

The ceremony is part of a great night of racing featuring the $500,000-added Stephen Foster Handicap.
Phipps and Janney, who are cousins, descend from a family that raced in the Kentucky Derby for the first time in 1928. Distraction, owned by the Wheatley Stable of Mrs. Henry Carnegie Phipps, ran 13th in the 54th Derby won by Reigh Count.
Also scheduled to take part in the Kentucky Derby trophy celebration is Claiborne Farm, the famed Paris, Ky. institution where Orb was bred and raised. Although Claiborne will not receive a trophy, the farm has boarded mares and worked closely with the winning owners for decades. Orb was the 10th horse either bred or raised at the farm to win the Kentucky Derby. The farm will be represented by Walker Hancock, son of Claiborne Farm president Seth Hancock.      
The trophy presentation will be part of a busy evening for Rosario, who's scheduled to ride in each of evening’s four stakes races. He'll be aboard Golden Ticket in the Stephen Foster, Funny Proposition in the Grade II Fleur De Lis Handicap (GII), Sunbean in the Grade III Matt Winn and Kitten’s Dumpling in the Grade III Regret.
The Spring Meet’s trio of themed “Downs After Dark” racing and entertainment celebrations are scheduled for the final three Saturdays this month: June 15 (The White Party), June 22 (Boots, Brew and BBQ) and June 29 (Star-Spangled Night).
Reserved seating can be purchased online at ChurchillDowns.com/Tickets or the on-track box office located at the Gate 1 entrance off Central Avenue (open Wednesday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. on ‘Downs After Dark’ Saturdays).
