It was an exciting year at the Horse Park in 2023 at the Hall of Champions. It was a bit sad during the summer that we lost two great Thoroughbreds in Hall of Famer Point Given and dual Classic-winning Kentucky Derby winner Funny Cide, but we were recently able to add two Breeders' Cup winners in Roy H–a two-time Breeders' Cup Sprint winner and two-time Eclipse Award winner–and Accelerate, one of the more exciting horses of the last 10 years, a five-time Grade I winner who won almost $7 million.

They were added at the park here in December and are settling in, getting ready for 2024.
