I Dedicate This Ride: The Making of Isaac Murphy
“I don’t pretend to make racing sound easy ‘cause it’s not. It takes strength, brains and courage, lightning reflexes, and a mountain of confidence.”
Inspired by the words of jockey Isaac Murphy, I Dedicate this Ride is the story of the famous African American horseman’s journey through life. During a time of racial tensions in the sport, Isaac Murphy defied the odds in the horse racing world and beyond. Narrated through praise songs and poems by Frank X Walker, this short production follows Murphy’s victories, losses, and experiences to remind us why he was one of the greatest jockeys to ever live.PUBLIC Streaming Pass 4.2 PUBLIC Streaming Pass 4.9

“We’ve been a part of the story the whole time, Juju.”
Sometimes history can feel so far away – yet we are still an intricate part of the events that unfold. In partnership with the i was here project, i was here is a collection of short stories inspired by the ancestral spirit portraits placed all around downtown Lexington. We hope to highlight stories of people of the past whose lives still impact the present.Purchase a Spring Family Membership
