We are thrilled to announce Derby Day Racing and two-time Breeders’ Cup winning trainer Buff Bradley will be hosting a meet and greet for all those interested in becoming a racehorse owner. You are cordially invited to attend and join us on the backstretch of iconic Churchill Downs on the morning of Saturday, June 2. 

The group will watch horses work up close, and then come off the track and head back to the barn. There you will see firsthand Buff’s stable, operation, and all the people that take such good care of the horses on a daily basis.

Doughnuts and coffee will be served, as you meet the team from Derby Day Racing, including Buff and his staff, and talented bloodstock agent, Josh Stevens.

Please come armed with questions for the team about how you can get involved, and specifically about the current two-year-old partnership. Most of all, be ready to have a great morning behind the scenes one of America’s finest racetracks.
