Virtual Race


46 spots left. Price increases after September 24, 2020 at 11:59pm EDT

2020 has thrown us a curve ball, and while we wish we could congregate together at Claiborne Farm this September, it's not something we can plan on. Instead of cancelling this year's event, we have decided to change it to a VIRTUAL 5K while still celebrating Runhappy's racing career and raising money for a nonprofit near to our hearts. 

The race celebrates the racing career of Claiborne Farm stallion and Champion Sprinter, Runhappy, who retired to stud in 2017. Runhappy received the accolades of Eclipse Champion Sprinter and Eclipse Champion 3-year-old in 2015. He is a three-time Grade 1 winning millionaire who was undefeated 7 for 7 in sprinting competition including the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Sprint and the Grade 1 King's Bishop. 

The proceeds from the 3rd Annual Claiborne Farm Runhappy 5K will be going to Horse County, a non-profit organization that strives to connect guests to the horse, land and people through experiences that inspire love of the animal and Kentucky.
