Man o’ War: The Legacy exhibit

Next Upcoming Date: Thursday, August 17 2017

"Man o’ War: The Legacy” is an interactive exhibit opening at the Kentucky Derby Museum. The exhibition will cover the life of Man o’ War, his impressive racing career, his ties to the Kentucky Derby and his lasting mark on Thoroughbred racing.

Many of the items in the exhibit were generously loaned to the Museum by collector Ken Grayson. Featured items include the saddle used aboard Man o' War during his match race with Sir Barton, the first-ever Triple Crown winner, an admission ticket to that same race and the official program from the famous 1938 match race between War Admiral, son of Man o' War, and the legendary Seabiscuit.

 

Exhibit opens on April 8
