Triple Crown Gala-A Night At The Races!
Fundraising Gala to Benefit Borrowed Freedom Therapuetic Riding’s Excelsior Programs for children, Veterans & Retiring Race Horses
Please join us for a night at the races! An evening of horses, hope and healing as we celebrate the beauty and versatility of the amazing Thoroughbred, and the magic of the horse-human bond.
Enjoy a wonderful Triple Crown buffet, including unique samplings inspired by the Kentucky Derby, The Preakness and the Belmont Stakes races. All made from scratch, with much love, and using local ingredients from area farms. Cash bar with beer, wine and soda. Try our signature White Wine Mint Julip!
The Visitor Center will be decorated in all the splendor of the races with a gorgeous museum display of vintage Thoroughbred racing lithographs by CW Anderson. Throughout the event we will have a full “Night at the Races” with fun Thoroughbred race simulations where you can wager some funny money and cheer on your favorite horse! If you are feeling up to a challenge, hop on our Equicizer and experience the same tool top jockey’s all over the world use before a race!
This is a casual evening full of fun, history, and everything Thoroughbred. The proceeds from the event will fund our Excelsior Thoroughbred Advancement Program which pairs retiring War Horses (a Thoroughbred who has raced more than 50 times or earned more than $100k) from the track with adults who are rebuilding their lives. Each will learn, grow, change and achieve greatness in their lives, while learning to give back and help others. We hope you will join us as we celebrate this incredible program!

About the Endicott Visitor Center:
The Endicott Visitor Center combines an historical museum, a gift shop, Community Meeting Hall and Banquet Facility. The Visitor Center, once popularly referred to as “Old Colonial Hall” was restored in the late 1990’s.
The graceful mansion now houses exhibits that reflect the origins of Harpur College, the corporate leadership of the Endicott Johnson Shoe Company, IBM and the strong influence the college and industries had on the development of Endicott, Johnson City and Binghamton.
