Kentucky Chautauqua® presents Roscoe Tarleton Goose: Kentucky Derby Winner

April 28, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


This re-enactment is made possible by Kentucky Humanities as part of their mission of Telling Kentucky’s Story.

Eddie Price portrays Roscoe Tarleton Goose who was a trainer, owner, adviser to buyers and served as president of the Kentucky Thoroughbred Breeders Association. But he is most famous for his 1913 ride aboard Kentucky Derby winner Donerail. We will join Roscoe upstairs in his “reminiscin’ room” on the eve of the 1962 Kentucky Derby. Some reporters have come over to interview him about his career. He begins to tell them about his early life and his victory in the 1913 Kentucky Derby. Kentucky Chautauqua and the Shelby County Public Library are proud to present Eddie Price in Kentucky Derby Winner.
