The 2022 RTCA White Horse Award winner is Nery Delcid, who bravely prevented a fire from spreading at Churchill Downs. The fire in one of the stalls was maliciously set by someone in the barn during the night and Nery acted quickly by calling 911, dousing the flames and calling security. He alerted the workers who were in the barn and together they helped control the fire. Thanks to Nery’s quick actions, there was no significant damage, and no human or horse was injured.
RTCA kicked off Breeders' Cup World Championship week in Lexington with a night full of faith, hope, and God's amazing love! The local community, horsemen and horsewomen, and the backstretch workers of the Breeder's Cup joined together for worship and fellowship! Everyone enjoyed a great meal, powerful message by guest speaker Oscar Tshiebwe, and worship music.
