My Old Kentucky Home State Park, 501 E Stephen Foster Avenue, Bardstown, KY, Phone 502-348-3502 will open "The Race is On" exhibit on the traditions of the Kentucky Derby on April 18, 2017. This exhibit will be open through May 31, 2017.
The exhibit is included in the regular ticket price for the regular Federal Hill mansion tour. Adult prices are $12 with discounted pricing available for seniors, children, military, and groups. Tours begin on the hour, from 8amCT/9amET, with last tour at 3pmCT/4pmET.
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!" Also, see costumes worn by Diane Lane and John Malkovich and props used in Disney's hit movie "Secretariat."
There are also items from 2015's Triple Crown Winner American Pharoah, including Zayat Stables LLC's silks, and more.
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!
