We are pleased to share information regarding this Fall Racing Preview Handicapping Party taking place on Thursday, October 3 in Lexington, Kentucky in advance of opening day at Keeneland Race Course. Benefiting the Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation that supports critical equine research, this three-hour program presented by Hagyard Equine Medicine and hosted by NBC Racing Broadcaster Nick Luck will feature guests including trainer Kenny McPeek, jockey Sophie Doyle and handicapper Ellis Starr. More information about tickets is available here.
Bonus for attendees: the Times has sponsored a special “Turf Times T-bred” cocktail (AKA Moscow Mule)! If you can’t attend the event, you can still donate here to the Foundation to support its important work in funding equine research that helps horses of all breeds to live healthier lives.
Readers can also make themselves a “Turf Times T-bred” at home using this traditional Moscow Mule recipe: In a cocktail shaker three-quarters filled with ice, combine 2 oz. vodka and .5 oz. fresh lime juice and shake until chilled. Strain into a mug, preferably copper, filled with crushed ice. Top with 3 oz. ginger beer and garnish with a lime wedge.
Thanks for reading and spread the word!
