Legendary Jockey Bill Hartack

The Bill Hartack Charitable Foundation: Honoring a Thoroughbred Racing Legend

The legendary jockey Bill Hartack touched the lives of friends, colleagues, and fans through his incredible accomplishments on the racetrack and his passion for horse racing. With nine victories in Triple Crown Classic races, he earned a place in history and inspired the entire racing community with his determination and good will.

Shortly after he passed away in 2007, the Friends of Bill Hartack established The Bill Hartack Charitable Foundation which annually contributes to thoroughbred racing industry charities and recognizes the jockey who rides the Kentucky Derby winner each year with The Hartack Memorial Award.

Congratulations to Joel Rosario, winner of the 2013 Kentucky Derby. The 2013 Hartack Memorial Award presentation will follow the last race on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at the Limestone Café at Keeneland in Lexington, KY.
