The 12th annual Benefit for the Backside: A Day at the Races!
Presented by Planet Fitness
Benefit for the Backside: A Day at the Races is the Backside Learning Center's largest annual fundraiser. The event supports the Learning Center's mission to provide educational and social services to the equine workers and families at Churchill Downs.

We are so excited to welcome you to historic Churchill Downs!  Please enter at the Clubhouse Gate (formerly gate 10) via Longfield Avenue and park in the Yellow or Turquoise lot.  A volunteer from BLC will be at the gate to give you a ticket for entry before being escorted to Millionaire's Row 6th Floor.  
 
​Benefit for the Backside is the most significant fundraiser for the Backside Learning Center. It generates crucial funding that allows the BLC to continue its current and future success.
