Gerry Dilger Equine Scholarship Foundation’s Inaugural Golf Tournament, Auction Set For October

The Gerry Dilger Equine Scholarship Foundation is pleased to announce its inaugural golf tournament and auction on October 10 at Houston Oaks Golf Course in Paris, Kentucky.

In a short period of time the foundation, in the name of the late Gerry Dilger, a breeder, consignor, and Dromoland Farm owner, has awarded scholarships to eight very deserving young people from North America and Europe.

None of this would be possible without the very generous support and collaboration of KEMI, Irish National Stud, Springhouse Farm, Lane’s End, University of Limerick, University College Dublin, and the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.

“The foundation has received tremendous financial support from the bloodstock community, whose contributions have changed the lives of these young people, preparing them for a career with horses and giving them a ‘leg up’ in the spirit of Gerry,” said Dilger’s widow, Erin Dilger.

Dilger, who co-bred 2017 Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Always Dreaming and consigned 2016 Kentucky Derby winner in Nyquist, died in 2020 at the age of 61.

The inaugural golf tournament has sponsorship and donation opportunities available and is also seeking items for an auction which will follow the golf.

For further information, please contact the foundation by email at info@gerrydilgerequine.com or by phone: Pat Costello 859-621-7764 or Padraig Campion 859-338-5042.
