John Asher Memorial Scholarship Fund at Western Kentucky University

Each year, Woodford Reserve selects a charitable organization to receive the net proceeds from the $1,000 Mint Julep Cups sold at the Kentucky Derby®, with more than $600,000 raised for equine and humanitarian causes to-date.

This year’s $1,000 Mint Julep Cup experience celebrates the Best of Kentucky. Woodford Reserve is proud to partner with the John Asher Memorial Scholarship Fund at Western Kentucky University. Asher, longtime Vice President of Racing Communications and spokesman of Churchill Downs beloved by many, died suddenly in August 2018 at age 62.
This year’s julep cup is curated to honor his life and dedication to the industry and the spirit of the Kentucky Derby while supporting the education of future students at Asher’s beloved alma mater, Western Kentucky University.
