Hanover Day at Churchill Downs


Sunday, June 12, 2016
Join us as we experience the exciting and colorful spectacle of thoroughbred racing at legendary Churchill Downs. Stroll through its historic grounds and enjoy the ambiance of one of the most-hallowed shrines in American sports.

For more than 35 years, this long-standing event is a staple for our alumni, friends and family every year. Millionaires Row features conveniently located mutuel windows, self-service wagering machines, multiple television monitors and a balcony overlooking the finish line. This special day also features The Alumni Classic. Each college in attendance is 'given' a horse to represent their school. Hanover's designated horse won the race in 2011 and 2012 and helped earn a total of $5,000 in donations to the college from Churchill Downs!


Shirts with collars, sweaters, dresses, pantsuits, and slacks are preferred and jackets are optional. Blazers, vest, golf shorts, dress shorts, dress jeans, and capris are appropriate. Worn or torn garments, tank tops, or midriff tops are not allowed.
