OUR BIG DERBY WEEK 2016 FUNDRAISER IS NOW IN THE HISTORY BOOKS, HELD MONDAY MAY 2nd at MOLLY MALONE'S in the Highlands, Louisville, Kentucky!

Thank you one and all for helping make this a record breaking year in every way!

10% of all sales from the evening will be donated by Molly Malone's to Second Stride Inc. 100% of all donations and bids on auction items go to the care and transition of retired Thoroughbred race horses.

Thank-you to everyone who came to our event with many celebrities like premier equine artist Celeste Susany, racing journalists Jennie Rees, Byron King, John Engelhardt, Gary Palmisano and Caton Bredar, the principals of SkyChai Racing, Derby trainers including Doug O'Neill, Churchill Downs announcer Travis Stone, author of the new Kentucky Derby Book, Bill Doolittle, Mr. & Mrs. Kentucky and Kentucky Derby Museum mascot mini horse "WINSTON"! Fun evening with wall to wall beautiful people inside and out!

Amidst all the hooplah of planning the big event, we adopted out two horses! Join us later for stories about these adoptions, because they are great! We'll also have a real recap of this big event, so please check back here for updates.

Our hearts are with the horses, and that's why we do this. Every success story gives us JOY beyond belief, and ultimately we have YOU to thank!
