America’s Best Racing, a $5 million marketing campaign by the Jockey Club to attract young fans to Thoroughbred racing, is in town this week. A hospitality bus painted with colorful horse-racing scenes and staffed by six young “ambassadors” will be at Thursday Night Live, Tin Roof and Keeneland before leaving Sunday for Louisville. The ambassadors, left to right, are: Hallie Hardy, John Cox, Jose Contreras, Mary Frances Dale, Chip McGaughey and Victoria Garofalo. The bus tour began in March at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, and ends at the Breeders’ Cup in Los Angeles in November. Photo by Tom Eblen | teblen@herald-leader.com
