The Race Is On!

April 18 - May 31

Kentucky Derby My Old Kentucky Home

Kentucky horse racing traditions are alive at My Old Kentucky Home in April and May! My Old Kentucky Home’s original owners, the Rowan family, ventured into the illustrious business world of horse racing during the early 19th century. John Rowan’s horses “Rifle,” “Magnatia,” and “Slipper” were sired by the most famous foundation bloodlines in horse racing.  In fact, every horse that has run the Kentucky Derby for decades has the same bloodlines coursing through their veins.

This year, My Old Kentucky Home has jockey silks on display from Kentucky’s winningest horse farms, fanciful ladies derby hats, a sparkling collection of original coin-silver family julep cups, and a Kentucky Derby trophy. This exhibit highlighting Kentucky’s most famous fun-filled celebration known as the “fastest two-minutes in sports” isn’t one to be missed!
