Who We Are

As One Racing

A diverse and inclusive partnership focused on introducing new owners to the exciting sport of horse racing through camaraderie, competition, and memorable experiences.

We want to change the face of the thoroughbred industry – from the farm, to the winner’s circle, and ultimately to the boardroom – by bringing new owners together with existing members of the industry, in As One Racing and beyond.

mission

Thoroughbred racing is rooted in African American history. In fact, 15 of the first 28 Kentucky Derby winners were ridden by black jockeys. Oliver Lewis, Isaac Murphy, Dudley Allen, and many other African Americans were champions of the sport.

That prominence was cut short by racism and the Jim Crow era, which all but eliminated opportunities for black jockeys, trainers, and owners.

As One Racing is working to overcome the effects of that past with a mission to:

Our Vision

Education

Oliver Lewis was the first jockey to win the Kentucky Derby, riding Aristides to victory in 1875.
By the early 20th century, many jockeys and trainers found themselves forced out of the racing industry (1891 Jockeys | John C. Hemment Photograph Collection | Keeneland Library)
Hall of Fame jockey Isaac Burns Murphy was the greatest horseman of his time. He was born into slavery but became a three-time champion of the Kentucky Derby. (John C. Hemment Photograph Collection | Keeneland Library)

ABOUT OUR TEAM

About Our logo

Featuring silhouette profiles of a horse and jockey standing together, the As One Racing logo reflects the partnership’s vision of a modern, inclusive approach to horse racing. Our partnership colors pay homage to Dudley Allen’s Jacobin Stable. Allen was an African American trainer and owner who won the 1891 Kentucky Derby with Kingman and jockey Isaac Murphy. A May 14, 1891 article in the Courier-Journal described the race and the cheers for Kingman, a colt with a mane “decked in blue, red, and yellow ribbons of the Jacobin Stable.”
