Scheduled from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m. in the Maker’s Mark VIP Tent, the social networking and happy hour event keys on three of Kentucky’s most cherished traditions: handmade bourbon, Thoroughbred racing, and storytelling.
A highlight of Bourbon, Bill and ‘Breds will be the drawing of entries for the $500,000 Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes (G3), to be run the following Saturday, March 26, at Turfway Park. NBC commentator and Turfway Park handicapper Mike Battaglia will be on hand to set the morning line odds for the race, which prepares three-year-olds hoping to earn their way to the Kentucky Derby. The draw will begin at 6:00 p.m.
Maker’s Mark has sponsored the VIP Tent at the Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes since 2003 and from 2004 through 2010 annually released a special bottle commemorating the race.
