Lone Star Park
Enjoy Lone Star Park’s upscale atmosphere from the terrace while you browse our exciting silent auction items and then enjoy dinner, drinks and live auction. Laugh, converse and practice your horse picking skills with friends and perhaps, make new ones while supporting a school that has become such a cornerstone of our community.

What to Wear
Where to Park
Park with the valet at Gate #5. Valet tickets can be pre-purchased with your ticket package otherwise, self-park will be available as well.
When You Arrive
Once you enter through Gate 5 you will see a Derby check in table. You will not get actual tickets, instead, your name will be on a list at the check-in desk. Proceed up the escalators inside the building to the Alysheba Room.
We’ll See You There, Rain or Shine!
Races go on in the pouring rain – they’re only called off if lightning is around. If we have lightning and the races are called off, we GO ON with even more gusto!
All proceeds benefit the programs and children of The Kessler School, a 501(c)3 organization.
