Press Release: Old Kentucky Chocolates Offering Chocolate to Benefit Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation

Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation announced that it is partnering with Old Kentucky Chocolates to raise money for equine veterinary research through the production and sale of equine-inspired boxes of chocolate. The boxes will contain information on Grayson and ways to donate, and $1 from each box sold will go toward the foundation.

“We are excited to partner with Old Kentucky Chocolates to enable anyone who loves horses and sweets to gift a taste of Central Kentucky to others while supporting an important cause,” said Dell Hancock, chairman of Grayson.

“Horses are synonymous with Kentucky, and we are honored to offer an item that directly supports their health and wellness,” said Julia Kirkpatrick, co-owner of Old Kentucky Chocolates. “These delicious boxes of chocolate are sure to be a hit with anyone who appreciates the horse, whether they are sent as an individual gift or as part of a large gathering.”

The specialty boxes are available now for online or phone orders and will be offered in-store starting in late October. Farms, tracks, racing fans, and horse lovers alike can order at or by calling 859-278-4444.

Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation is traditionally the nation's leading source of private funding for equine medical research that benefits all breeds of horses. Since 1983, the foundation has provided more than $32.1 million to fund 412 projects at 45 universities in North America and overseas. Additional information about the foundation is available at

Old Kentucky Chocolates began making small batch Bourbon Chocolates in 1964. Now in their third generation, this family-owned business continues to craft artisan chocolates with creativity, patience and mastery.
