On the Cover
On our April cover, we honor the legacy of Lexington’s adopted daughter, Virginia ‘Din’ Dulworth. Dulworth died in February, just a month shy of her 94th birthday, and was a celebrated and gifted horsewoman, pianist, writer, poet, and artist. Her “final farewell party” was held in March at the American Saddlebred Museum at the Kentucky Horse Park.
Also featured in April, Kevin Nance goes behind the scenes with HorseMania 2022 to find out how this year’s project is helping to heal Kentucky’s tornado-ravaged region, with a little help from Independence Bank.
Ace Eats Out
April brings with it Keeneland, Easter, sunny weekends at the Farmers Market, and a return to patio season in the bluegrass. Births, rebirths, and transitions are the order of the day for April’s edition of Ace Eats Out, Lexington’s latest restaurant news.

Thomas had covered the now infamous 2008 Derby “when Big Brown made his move in the middle of the pack to win, and the filly Eight Belles, finished second.
