TWN Hosts Inaugural Ted Talk-esque Event During Breeders’ Cup Festival

The Thoroughbred Women’s Network is proud to present the inaugural Women: Racing Ahead, a Ted Talk like discussion with prominent female professionals, as part of this year’s Breeders Cup Festival. The event will take place on Thursday, November 1 at the Kentucky Derby Museum beginning at 1pm eastern.

Women: Racing Ahead will feature the stories of successful women from all industries and walks of life. The inaugural edition features Laura Schwab, President of Aston Martin the Americas and Neeli Bendapudi, President of the University of Louisville. Schwab is a native of Louisville and Aston Martin’s first female president in its 105-year history. Bendapudi, eighteenth president of U of L, is the first female and non-white president of the institution that was founded in 1798.

“The opportunity to create an event with the Breeders’ Cup and carry such magnitude for TWN’s first fundraiser is humbling”, said Executive Director, Aly Kirchner. “To be able to bring inspirational women to the world championship of horse racing, which is made up of so many successful women in its own right, is our privilege.”

The Thoroughbred Women’s Network was founded with the goal of encouraging mentorship and developing a network for aspiring women in the Thoroughbred industry. To further these goals, a student rate and donate button have been implemented to inspire individuals to easily purchase a ticket in addition to their own, or to be used in their absence by a student or young professional otherwise unable to attend. Those opting to donate can specify a name of an attendee or can gift the ticket to the TWN.

Registration for the event which includes beverages and refreshments is open with tickets available on TWN’s website or at:

The Thoroughbred Women’s Network (TWN) unites the enthusiasm and community of women who share a passion for racing by promoting their presence in the sport via mentoring, events, and relationships. TWN will showcase and raise awareness of current successes and participation of women in the industry, encouraging others to get involved, achieve and contribute to the future of the Thoroughbred. For more information visit:
