LTS To Host Reception, “Hard Hat Tours” Tonight — Wednesday, Aug. 21

The Louisville Thoroughbred Society will host its’ second “Membership Drive Question & Answer Event” tonight at 6 p.m. at the private club’s downtown location.

If you have interest and/or questions about the LTS and what we may look like or offer, please arrive at 226 East Washington Street and come to the Ice House for an “Open House” reception. Be sure to leave enough time to navigate downtown Louisville today and this evening, which will have some detours due to the visit by President Donald Trump. 

The event will begin at 6 p.m. and run to 8 p.m. Hors D’oeuvres will be offered. A “cash bar” will be open. And, the “Founding Members” of the new facility will be on hand to answer any and all questions about the new project.

In addition, the “LTS Team” will lead visitors on a personal “Hard Hat Tour” of the facility. Get a first hand look at downtown Louisville’s latest attraction, and a location that not only will offer quality entertainment, and high-definition replays of horse races from around the world, but also will provide the city’s only off-site, horse race wagering opportunities.

Drop us an email and let us know that you and your friends will be joining us for this festive and entertaining night out (an in) to see what we are up to at the Louisville Thoroughbred Society.

After convening at the Ice House at 6 p.m., our attendees will be split into groups of 10 each. A designated “Spokesperson” will “guide” you next door for a personalized, “Hard Hat Tour” of the facility — which is now fully under construction and is planned to be ready for occupancy the first of 2020.

After the tour is finished, we will be retiring back to the Ice House for a “Question and Answer” session, served up with some hot food and cold drinks.

The horse broke well today,” Gaffalione said. “I had the horse inside, Dunph, going to the lead and then (Gun It) showed a little bit of speed. When I saw they were intent on going I just tried to get him back and got him to relax. He came back to me nicely and settled well down the backside. Got a little keen going into the far turn and wanted to move a little early. But I didn’t want to take too much away from him so I tried to sit as long as I could. He was waiting on horses down the lane but I kept him at task and there was plenty of horse there.”

“Mark (Casse, the trainer) and his team have done a great job,” Gaffalione said. “They’ve had a ton of confidence in this horse the whole way. It’s just an honor to be able to ride the horse. He’s just so professional, trains great and he’s a pleasure to be around.”
