FIRST ANNUAL NTRA CHARITIES KENTUCKY DERBY PRO-AM TO TEE OFF MONDAY
Triple Crown-winning jockey Steve Cauthen, as well as current riders Corey Nakatani and Robby Albarado, are among those slated to take part in the NTRA Charities Kentucky Derby Pro-Am at Lake Forest Country Club in Louisville on Monday, April 30. Country music recording star John Michael Montgomery, former University of Louisville basketball coach Denny Crum, NTRA Commissioner Tim Smith, Churchill Downs President and CEO Thomas Meeker and a host of others are also scheduled to take part in the event, which will be covered on FOX-TV's "Inside Kentucky Golf." Play will get underway at 1:00 p.m.
The tournament benefits NTRA Charities, which strives to broaden the Thoroughbred industry's scope of community outreach through its national charity affiliate, Ronald McDonald House Charities, as well as increase awareness for the protection and welfare of equine athletes through its Racehorse Adoption Referral Program.
