Kentucky Downs Research Day

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

Glen Hill Farm will be sponsoring the $250,000 One Dreamer Stakes at the Franklin, Kentucky, turf track. Breeders’ Cup, Equibase, Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital, and Starlight Partners are sponsoring the four overnight races. All sponsorship dollars 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, Kentucky Downs president. “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.”

Jamie Haydon, Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation vice-president, added, “We are grateful for Kentucky Downs’ continued support of Grayson’s efforts to help the horse. 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.”
