You’re in for an evening of unbridled fun when AHTD spends the evening at the Kentucky Derby Museum! Enjoy a cocktail as you trot through the exhibits that will take you through the journey from the birth of the foal to the winner’s circle. After dinner, you will be able to bet on your favorite filly or stallion during the mock racing. Ladies, don’t forget your Derby hat or fascinator. Gentlemen, no ties required, but we’d love to see that seersucker suit!
This evening is included in your conference registration. Can’t wait to see you there!
