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.

The Hartack Memorial Award was presented to 2015 Kentucky Derby winning jockey Victor Espinoza on Monday, May 2, 2016 at the Kentucky Derby Museum in Louisville, KY.
