Kentucky Derby Museum Stable

Right outside the Museum in to the Oaks Garden Terrace you will find our live, permanent stable exhibit. Here is where we house a Resident Thoroughbred and our companion pony, Tatanka.

Also located in the garden terrace are the gravesites of five famous Kentucky Derby winners, Brokers Tip (1933), Swaps (1955), Carry Back (1961), Dust Commander (1970) and Sunny’s Halo (1983). Second place 2008 Derby finishing filly Eight Belles is interred in the Museum’s back garden under a Magnolia tree planted in her honor.
