Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA), the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF) and New Vocations have been named the co-beneficiaries of the Charitable Impact Group’s fifth annual Kentucky Oaks and Derby Handicapping Benefit Dinner. The event will be held at Fasig-Tipton in Lexington, Ky. Monday, Apr. 29 at 6:00 p.m.
NBC racing analyst Donna Brothers will host a panel of handicappers including Daily Racing Form‘s Mike Welsch, Hall of Fame jockey Jerry Bailey, and NBC’s Randy Moss. Limited tickets are available and can be purchased at cigevents.org. Tickets include expert handicapping advice, cocktails, dinner by multiple James Beard award nominee chef Ouita Michel, and a live and silent auction.
“Through our Derby, Belmont and Breeders’ Cup Handicapping events, in partnership with DRF and the NBC racing team, we have been able to raise and donate over $300,000 to the jockeys and horses that make this beautiful and demanding sport so special,” said Dr. Pete Hester, president of the Charitable Impact Group. “We like to believe that we have, more importantly, created a much-needed awareness of these brave and bold athletes when they are injured or when their racing careers end.”
