Hall of Champions

The Hall of Champions is currently home to eight retired Thoroughbred, Quarterhorse and Standardbred racing legends, who daily meet and interact with guests. Be a Bono, Da Hoss, Funny Cide, Go For Gin, Mr. Muscleman, Staying Together, Western Dreamer and Won the West are presented in hand during a moving performance that includes video clips of their glory days and unforgettable moments from racing history. Even in their retirement they continue to serve as great ambassadors to their breed and sport.

Memorials around the hall honor those who have spent their last days here - treated as royalty and indulging fans from across the country - the inimitable Cigar, John Henry, Alysheba, Bold Forbes, Cam Fella, Wild Eyed and Wicked, Forego, Rambling Willie, Skywatch, Imperator, Sgt Pepper Feature and Gypsy Supreme.

We are honored to have known and cared for them all, and grateful for the support of our donors whose contributions enable these beautiful athletes to enjoy the retirement they deserve. For more information about ways to help please contact our office at 859-255-5727.
