Backstretch Chaplaincy

The Backstretch Chapel at Emerald Downs is about people loving people who serve the horse racing industry.

Those living and working at Emerald Downs have unique life and community based needs. By the direction of God’s word, the Chapel ministers holistically to peoples spiritual, physical, emotional, and social needs. The work creates a better working environment and enhances the quality of life for those on the racetrack.

The face of the ministry is Chaplain Gilbert Aguilar who serves non-denominationally in the barns, locker rooms, and meeting areas of Emerald Downs.

The Backstretch Chapel is a faith based 501(c)3 whose budget is based solely on the donations of those who share their vision. Thank you for your encouragement and support.
