Secretariat Bourbon Box Set
Secretariat Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Personal Selection Bottle

Secretariat Box Set Limited Release

As a prelude to our new exhibit, Secretariat: America's Horse (opens in April), Kentucky Derby Museum is celebrating with a Bourbon Box Set featuring a rare bourbon from Woodford Reserve.

Kentucky Derby Museum’s commemorative Secretariat Bourbon Box Set celebrates the legend's 50th anniversary of his Triple Crown sweep!

This is the only Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Personal Selection pick of 2022. Two batches were selected and bottled for the Museum, yielding only enough Bourbon to fill 400 Box Sets. Every bottle from both batches are numbered. Once these limited Box Sets are sold, the Museum will announce another limited release to coincide with the Secretariat Bourbon Dinner, to be held on Thursday, April 20.

Secretariat 50th Anniversary Medallion

This metal medallion features an image of Secretariat racing on one side, and an image of Ron Turcotte’s signature stamped on the other. Hall of Fame jockey Ron Turcotte guided the legendary Secretariat into Triple Crown history in 1973. He rode Secretariat’s stable-mate Riva Ridge to victory in the Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes in 1972. His triumph aboard Secretariat the following year made him the first jockey in 70 years to win back-to-back Kentucky Derbys and the only rider to win five of six consecutive Triple Crown races.
