THE ORIGINAL
Denver Derby Party

Presented by Woodford Reserve

OFTEN IMITATED, NEVER REPLICATED – The Original Denver Derby Party, now in its 18th year, is the biggest of its kind outside Kentucky. Held annually on the first Saturday in May, and spread out over 4 blocks in Downtown Denver, it has become a Colorado tradition. 100% of all ticket proceeds benefit the Sean Ranch Lough-Foundation, which provides 4 year college scholarships to underprivileged students. Thanks in large part to the support of our patrons, the SRL Foundation has given 55 students the chance to attend college without financial burden!

100% Proceeds Benefit Sean ‘Ranch’ Lough Memorial Scholarship

Sean Lough (AKA ‘Ranch’) was a dear friend, brother and son who tragically passed away in 2001 as a result of a mountain biking accident. The scholarship given in his name helps an individual exemplifying the qualities Ranch had, including a high GPA, an economic need and most of all a hearty personality and a love for life.
