The new exhibit includes items from the world-famous horse, Secretariat, including his winning Preakness Stakes flower blanket garland, winning bets, and racing silks from Secretariat's horse farm "The Meadow!"

See My Old Kentucky Home's "Kentucky Bowl," a trophy carefully and exquisitely handcrafted in crystal by the world-famous Steuben glass works, designed by Sidney Waugh, a member of the original "Monuments Men" that helped to save priceless works of art during WWII.

"My Old Kentucky Home" will be performed on each tour by the park's guides.

Visitors can also enjoy imaginative and over-the-top Derby hats and seersucker fashion on display in the mansion's parlor, in addition to My Old Kentucky Home's own set of coin silver mint julep cups made by William & Archibald Cooper.

Learn the story of how "My Old Kentucky Home" became the official post parade song of the Kentucky Derby and My Old Kentucky Home's horse racing history that connects the 200-year-old farm to virtually every Kentucky Derby winner in history!
