The First Annual Derby Day LA

Spread the love

 

It was a beautiful spring day in Los Angeles when Derby Day LA came to Southern California. The celebrities came out to raise money for charity and have a Kentucky Derby experience second only to the legendary Churchill Downs. As the “Get Down Boys” played  an amazing selection of bluegrass music, hundreds of Southern California residents enjoyed the fashion and ceremony of the Kentucky Derby. There was an open bar that included Mint Juleps, hand crafted artisanal Kentucky Whiskey from Woodford Reserve, Don Julio tequila and beer from Peroni brewery.
The guests enjoyed coverage from the race as well as gourmet southern comfort food. Other sponsors at the event were VOSS Water, Van Nuys Jeep and Los Angeles Magazine.

A portion of proceeds from ticket sales benefit both Canter California, an organization dedicated to transitioning thoroughbred racehorses off the track into new careers and RideOn, a charity that teaches adaptive horseback riding to children and adults with physical and cognitive disabilities.
This was the first annual Derby Day LA and the Experience Magazine is looking forward to covering next years event.
