The Deighton Cup is proud to host a classic event that celebrates the most famous bourbon libations – our spirit of choice when at the track. The perfect summer refreshment, these fabulous cocktail inspirations date back to the early 1800s and beyond. Mouth-watering beverages are designed and perfected over months by eager entrants only to be tested against a superb class of peers and judged by some of the finest palates in the city.
Departing from previous years, the 2018 edition of this distinguished competition will take place at our Starting Gate preview party, on May 5th, at a chic lounge downtown. Stay tuned for more details.
The prize? Racetrack fame, bragging rights and cash for first place. The winner’s name and cocktail will be engraved on the one and only Boothby Julep trophy. Other special surprises are also in store for contestants including limited edition pieces from our great partners. Space is limited to 10 hopefuls. Stay tuned for further details and how to enter the competition.
