Kentucky Derby winner will try to win Triple Crown on Saturday
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 1, 2015) — The Kentucky Derby Museum on Friday will unveil an updated exhibit featuring Kentucky Derby winner American Pharoah. Using images, video, text and sound, six exhibits will be revised to reflect American Pharoah’s accomplishments as he takes his place in the history books.
Capture the Moment, located inside the Museum’s lobby, is dedicated to telling the story of the most recent Kentucky Derby, from the race itself to fans cheering from all locations around Churchill Downs. Through a collage of photos and video, Capture the Moment will symbolize the day surrounding American Pharoah’s thrilling victory.
The Winner’s Circle on the first floor, near the “It’s My Derby” exhibit, will feature a replica Thoroughbred depicting American Pharoah’s exact look. The horse will be draped with a Garland of Red Roses, with the odds of the race displayed on a mock tote board.
“The Greatest Race,” the 17-minute, 360-degree high-definition show that brings the Kentucky Derby story to life and acts as the centerpiece of the Museum’s first floor, will be updated to feature video and sound from American Pharoah’s win. The Derby Timeline surrounding the Great Hall, which features every Kentucky Derby winner, will display complete race results and other key statistics from the latest edition.
American Pharoah will attempt to be the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years on Saturday at the Belmont Stakes. Race time is scheduled for 6:50 p.m. Affirmed was the last horse to win the racing trifecta in 1978.
