FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2019 at 6:30PMNIGHT BEFORE THE DERBY

Horse Racing in America is a tradition going far back in the nation’s history.  Rhode Island can lay claim to one of the Fathers of the American Trotting Horse Association; as well as to the origins of the Narragansett Pacer, one of the foundation breeds of the Tennessee Walking Horse, the American Saddlebred, and other American breeds.  Thoroughbred racing in Rhode Island included breeders noted throughout the Northeast. 

Join us to celebrate the 145th “Run for the Roses”.  Featured will be a ladies’ hat competition; and the meal will include some of the favorite dishes served at famous Kentucky Stud Farms.
