Kentucky Race Track Chaplaincy Race for Grace to Be Held May 2


Churchill DownsCoady

The Kentucky Race Track Chaplaincy's 20th annual Race For Grace, a dinner event raising financial support for the chaplaincy, will be held May 2 on Millionaires' Row in the clubhouse at historic Churchill Downs, five days before the running of the GI Kentucky Derby. Hall of Fame Jockey and Derby winner Pat Day, who has been the President of the Kentucky Race Track Chaplaincy the past six years, will be the Master of Ceremonies.

The keynote speaker will be nationally-recognized Pastor Bob Russell. At the age of 22, Bob became the pastor of Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, Kentucky. That small congregation of 120 members became one of the largest churches in America, with 18,000 people attending the three worship services every weekend in 2006 when Russell retired.

The event will have a live auction featuring a box for the 2023 Kentucky Derby and Oaks and a silent auction featuring leather halters from 2022 Kentucky Derby participants, horse racing art and memorabilia.
