History of The Yearlings
The Spiral Stakes at Florence’s Turfway Park was inaugurated in 1979 and grew into a huge community celebration with festival and charitable events that required hundreds of volunteers.
The Yearlings were founded in 1986 as the Spiral Festival Auxiliary, to assist with coordinating the numerous charitable activities surrounding the Spiral Stakes. When the Spiral Festival was disbanded in 1991, the energetic and dedicated members of The Yearlings did not want to discontinue their efforts to serve their community.
The Yearlings declared their independence from the Spiral Stakes and incorporated in 1991 as a non-profit organization whose mission is raising the maximum for charity at minimum administrative costs.
