Four trainers and two jockeys who have won the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) will be part of a special "It’s My Derby" event at the Kentucky Derby Museum during Breeders’ Cup week.

The event will be held from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 2 at the museum located at Churchill Downs, which will host the World Championships Nov. 5-6.

Sharing their experiences and racing memories at the fund-raiser to benefit the non-profit museum will be Derby-winning trainers D. Wayne Lukas, Nick Zito, Bob Baffert, and Carl Nafzger and Derby-winning jockeys Pat Day and Calvin Borel.

Carolyn Conley of HRTV’s "RaceDay America" will lead the conversation on-stage and the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions.

The event will also include an auction of unique opportunities such as V.I.P. rodeo tickets with Nafzger, Derby week brunch at Lukas’ home, Derby week dinner with Baffert, Derby week backside tours, golf at Valhalla with Gary Stevens.

In a partnership with T.R.O.T.T., three pair of goggles worn by Mike Smith during Zenyatta’s 17th, 18th and 19th wins will be auctioned.

General admission tickets of $35 include open seating with cash bar and a special presentation and samples from Brown Forman. V.I.P. tickets are $125 per person and will include a reception with the winners, reserved seating, open bar and food prior to the event.

More information about the event, the auction items, and tickets is available at the Kentucky Derby Museum website.
