Kentucky Humanities presents Eddie Price as Roscoe Tarleton Goose: Kentucky Derby Winner! .
Join us on Sunday, February 11 at 2:00 p.m. for this free public presentation! Eddie Price will present Roscoe Tarleton Goose, one of the most famous Kentucky jockeys to have ever raced and won! Roscoe Tarleton Goose was born on a Jeffersontown, Kentucky farm in 1891. As a child, Roscoe took a job riding horses for a blacksmith in Louisville to help his family’s finances. Fearless and slight of build, Goose was a natural horseman. While exercising horses at Churchill Downs, Goose was approached by trainer John Kuprion to ride as a jockey. By autumn of 1910, Roscoe Tarleton Goose was the leading money winning jockey at Churchill Downs and was one of the top riders in America. A few years later, he had attracted the attention of trainer and farm owner Thomas Patrick Hayes. Hayes had a horse called Donerail he wanted Goose to ride in the Kentucky Derby. In what was a stunning victory, Roscoe Tarleton Goose and Donerail won the 1913 Kentucky Derby. The race odds were set at 91:1, the longest odds of a Derby winner, a record which still stands. Roscoe Tarleton Goose is portrayed by Eddie Price of Hawesville. Price is a graduate of Kentucky Wesleyan College and Western Kentucky University. He worked as a high school history teacher for more than 30 years and a part-time instructor at Owensboro Community & Technical College for 21 years. Price is the author of the award-winning historical fiction novel Widders Landing and is a member of the Kentucky Humanities Speakers Bureau. Kentucky Chautauqua is an exclusive presentation of Kentucky Humanities with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and from: the Brown-Forman Corporation, the Carson-Myre Charitable Foundation, the Cralle Foundation, Eastern Kentucky University, the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation, Lindsey Wilson College, Morehead State University, Mountain Telephone, Paducah Bank, PNC, and Toyota Motor Manufacturing North America, Inc. Kentucky Humanities is a non-profit Kentucky corporation affiliated with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
