The Kentucky Race Track Chaplaincy will celebrate 21 years of ministry to the backside workers at Kentucky’s and Southern Ohio’s racetracks at the Race for Grace Banquet and Auction, which will be held Monday, May 1 on Millionaires Row in the clubhouse at Churchill Downs from 6-9pm. It is the chaplaincy’s primary fund-raising event and the money generated will help continue their mission to minister to the fundamental and spiritual needs of the horsemen and women working at the racetracks and training centers Kentucky and Southern Ohio. The organization provides a clothes closet, food bank, weekly services and Bible studies, women’s and children’s ministries, transportation to off-track appointments and moral support where needed.
The honored speakers who will be discussing ‘Hoops and Horses’ will be trainer D. Wayne Lukas and Bellarmine coach Scotty Davenport. The event will feature a live auction anchored by Keeneland’s Director of Auctioneers Ryan Mahan and items on offer include six seat boxes for the 2024 Kentucky Derby and Oaks; leather halters from 2023 Kentucky Derby entries; and a silent auction with horse racing art and memorabilia. For more information and event tickets, please go to the Kentucky Chaplaincy website.
