811 Horse Racing Toolkit

811 is Racing Again

This year, the Kentucky Derby is returning to its traditional spot on the calendar -- the first Saturday of May -- for the 147th running of the prestigious horse race, delivering “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” to millions of viewers on May 1.

For the eighth consecutive year, Common Ground Alliance and member USA North 811 have identified a jockey to sport the 811 safety message during this highly anticipated event -- and earn the safe digging message hundreds of thousands of dollars in media exposure, regardless of the race’s outcome.

We’re excited to announce that 811 will be sponsoring jockey Marcelino Pedroza, who will ride in his first-ever Derby aboard O Besos.
