In its second year, this party has proven to be the place to celebrate a big day of cross-country at the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event. All proceeds will support the Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium, a $100,000 training competition on the last weekend of October at Kentucky Horse Park featuring over 500 Thoroughbreds beginning second careers in ten riding sports.
The Hoedown will feature live music by celebrated farrier Steve Norman’s Shades of Grass Band with catering by central Kentucky’s award-winning Red State Barbecue, and an open bar with bourbon sponsored by Bourbon Lane Stables.
Tickets are $50 for adults with a $15 discount for Retired Racehorse Project members ($45 annual dues includes free Makeover tickets and quarterly Off-Track Thoroughbred magazine). This party sold out last year, so get tickets now!
