Kentucky Derby Party

The Annual Kentucky Derby Party sponsored by Friends of Sanford Stud Farm, was held in Amsterdam, New York on Saturday, May 4, 2013.  The free event started with a tour of the former Sanford Stud Farm Broodmare Barn, where visitors viewed Kentucky Derby Memorabilia from Amsterdam’s 2 Derby Winners-1916(George Smith) & 1929(Clyde Van Dusen).

The event continued at the Recovery Room Sports Grill where attendees were given a chance to pick the Kentucky Derby winner before the live viewing on the large screen televisions. There was also a hat contest where prices were awarded for the most original and prettiest hats. Fifteen percent of the attendees food and beverage bill went to the Friends of Sanford Stud Farm  preservation efforts.
