Calumet Farm | Sarah Andrew

The Kentucky Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners will present the William T. Young Humanitarian Award to Blue Grass Farms Charities during its annual awards presentation which will be held at the Keeneland Sales Pavilion Apr. 7 beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Blue Grass Farms Charities provides health and human services to people working on Central Kentucky's Thoroughbred farms.

“On behalf of the board of directors and staff, we are honored to accept the accolade,” said BGFC executive director Julie Berry. “The meaning of the William T. Young Humanitarian Award is definitely symbolic for 2020. We can all agree that this has been like no other year. We are so grateful.”

Established in 2003 in honor of the late owner of Overbrook Farm, the William T. Young Award is voted on by the KTOB's board of directors.
