The jockeys participated in a question and answer session at the track and an autograph signing to raise funds for the PDJF and National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.
Retired Kentucky Derby-winning jockeys Ray York and Bill Boland are back in Kentucky for Derby week, and they enjoy being spectators this time around.
In 1950, Bill Boland became part of Kentucky Derby history when he rode Middleground to victory and became just the second apprentice jockey to win the famed race. Only 16 at the time, he also won the Kentucky Oaks aboard Ari's Mona the day before.

By Ray Paulick -- For the second consecutive year, no contemporary horses were elected to the National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame. That is astonishing, considering some of the champions named on the ballot.
Carl Hanford, trainer of five-time Horse of the Year Kelso; Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes winning jockey Bill Boland; and Cougar II, a turf champion who was also adept on dirt, have been elected to the National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame.
