We created Harlem Derby to highlight the successful history and impact of African Americans in thoroughbred horse racing, including that legacy within the Kentucky Derby. We utilize Harlem’s iconic fashion and style to showcase the African American contribution to America’s oldest sport.

This year we will crown the Best 2020 Uptown Mint Julep!

From April 15th - May 2nd, mixologists from participating Harlem restaurants and bars will compete in the 2nd Annual Uptown Mint Julep Showcase. This contest is part of Harlem Derby Music Festival's 'Run for the Roses Gala & Kentucky Derby Watch Party' event which will be held at The Cecil Steakhouse and Minton's Playhouse on Saturday, May 2nd.

Each contestant will create their own take on the Kentucky Derby's Classic Cocktail - The Mint Julep. Each Julep, made with Woodford Reserve Bourbon Whiskey, Woodford Reserve Rye, Woodford Reserve Double Oak, and Woodford Reserve Malt will be evaluated on taste, presentation, and creativity via Harlem Derby's Instagram Voting Contest: @harlemderby. Guests at The 8th Annual Run for the Roses Gala can also cast their votes for the 'Best 2020 Mint Julep.'  They'll also have the opportunity to sample all Uptown Mint Julep Showcase recipes.
