The Backside Learning Center (BLC) will host the “Thoroughbred Owner's Derby Handicapping Social” at the Louisville Thoroughbred Society on Thursday, Apr. 14 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The event, sponsored by Rocket Ship Racing, LLC, will serve as a launch for BLC's initiative Purses for a Purpose, in which owners can invest directly in the backstretch workers who are vital to the racing industry. Through Purses for a Purpose, owners can pledge to donate customizable portions of their horses' winnings, with the money going directly to programming at the BLC.

The evening will also feature a 2022 Derby handicapping seminar with a panel including Caton Bredar, Joe Kristufek, and Brandon Stauble. Donna Barton Brothers will moderate and Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale will be a special guest. There will also be a cigar bar and bourbon raffle, with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and drinks by Crushed Ice Catering.

The Derby Handicapping Social is free with a $20 suggested donation at the door. Click for more information.
