Kentucky Derby "Run for the Roses"

Chaplain ken praying for jockeys at Kentucky derby

RTCA Executive Director Dr. Torres snapped this photo just before the “Run for the Roses” at the Kentucky Derby.

Chaplain Ken Boehm gave them a devotional thought on running the best race they could and “giving the Glory to God!” He then prayed for their safety and blessed them.

We are thankful to God that all the jockeys came through the race safely and were saddened by the tragic loss of Eight Belles.

The RTCA family lifted their prayers to God in support of Larry Jones, the trainer who is a supporter of the RTCA and for the owners, the jockey, the groomsman and all who worked with and loved Eight Belles.
