On June 14th, the winning connections from WinStar farm and Todd Pletcher’s Churchill Downs training team joined Derby Museum members to see the updates made to the Museum in celebration of Super Saver’s historic win.
Doug Cauthen, CEO of WinStar Farm presented some very special items from the team’s historic win for display in the Museum’s front lobby. The Derby artifacts include: Calvin Borel’s signed jockey boots, his whip, all four shoes from the race, Susan Casner’s bejeweled WinStar jacket worn in the winner’s circle and a hat worn by the wife of owner Kenny Troutt. This year’s newly engraved Gold Cup Trophy was also on display during the exclusive event.
Members enjoyed entertainment by local Bluegrass band “Shades of Grass”. (Pletcher’s local farrier is a member of the band!) The evening capped off with a special showing of “The Greatest Race”. Many thanks to the Super Saver team for attending and helping us celebrate their accomplishments!
The team is celebrated in the front lobby of the museum with huge wall graphics and a video presentation. This year’s race has been added to the museum’s time machine exhibit and the horse in the winner’s circle now represents Super Saver, complete with a jockey dressed in WinStar Farm silks.
