Black Heritage in Thoroughbred Racing Exhibit


This exhibit chronicles the integral role African Americans have played in Thoroughbred racing in America from the very first Derby, where 13 of the 15 jockeys were African-American, to present times. Featured artifacts include ankle boots worn by the inaugural Kentucky Derby winner, Aristides, and silks from Oaktown Stables, operated by the family of 1990s musician Stanley “Hammer” Burrell.
