Kentucky Downs Research Day Sponsorships Sold Out


Five Races Raise Funds

Sponsorships have been obtained for all five of the races Kentucky Downs made available for Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation Day, to be held on Saturday, Sept. 1.

Glen Hill Farm will sponsor the $250,000 One Dreamer Stakes. Breeders’ Cup, Equibase, Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital, and Starlight Partners are sponsoring four overnight races. All sponsorship revenues go to Grayson to support equine research.

“Kentucky Downs is pleased to once again host Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation Day and support equine health,” said Corey Johnsen, president of Kentucky Downs. “Grayson-funded research helps not just Thoroughbreds, but horses of all breeds, and we’re glad to support an organization that enables such important work.”

 Kentucky Downs’ continued support of Grayson’s efforts to help the horse,” said Jamie Haydon, vice president of Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation. “We would like to thank our sponsors’ generosity on behalf of the horses for what I am sure will be an outstanding day of racing.”

Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation is traditionally the nation's leading source of private funding for equine medical research that benefits all breeds of horses. Since 1983, the foundation has provided more than $26.3 million to fund 358 projects at 43 universities in North America and overseas. Additional information about the foundation is available at grayson.jockeyclub.org.
