The Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association announced Aug. 30 that Tom Leach will host the 27th Annual National Awards Dinner to be held Sept. 7 at the Keeneland Entertainment Center in Lexington.
The Keeneland Association honored its contestants for Saturday's running of the $750,000 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) Thursday evening with a special dinner at the Keene Barn entertainment complex on the Keeneland grounds. The connections from most of the eight runners, Marylou Whitney Stable's Birdstone was scratched earlier in the day, were interviewed following the dinner, and following are some of the comments made by them.
Several local charities will be using Keeneland's race meet as a springboard for their fundraising efforts this fall.
