07:00 PM - 08:00 PM

Jack Gilden ’87 will share the never-before told story of how “the Bid” broke speed records but unexpectedly and controversially lost the 1979 Belmont Stakes and the elusive Triple Crown. The brilliant young rider was destroyed by the experience. Jack is also the author of, “Collision of Wills: Johnny Unitas, Don Shula, and the Rise of the Modern NFL,” published in 2018 by the University of Nebraska Press. Register here.
