LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Churchill Downs donated more than $100,000 to Horses & Hopes and Louisville's Dare to Care food bank today.

The funds came from Derby weekend and were presented to the organizations in the track's winner's circle after today's fourth race.

 Horses & Hopes received a check for $30,000 and has collectively donated $150,000 to that organization in the last five years. 

Kentucky's First Lady, Jane Beshear, leads this organization along with a women's health care partner with Churchill Downs in celebration with Kentucky Oaks Day.
