The Kentucky Derby held under the fabled Twin Spires on the first Saturday of May is the most famous race in America. Since 1875, Churchill Downs has hosted the iconic race where racing traditions continue and legends are born. This collection of official track programs chronicling the classic race begins with the 53rd running in 1927, when Whiskery earned the coveted garland of roses. The collection skips two years and picks up in 1930 with the revered Gallant Fox and continues uninterrupted each and every year to 2020 winner Authentic. This amazing assemblage of racing history, totaling 92 programs in all, includes some of Thoroughbred racing's greatest names, including 12 Triple Crown champions: the aforementioned Gallant Fox, Omaha, War Admiral, Whirlaway, Count Fleet, Assault, Citation, Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Affirmed, American Pharoah, and Justify. With Kentucky Derby programs from prior to 1960 becoming increasingly scarce, this offering is a chance to immediately own an impressive and highly valued collection.
