Available May 1
LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 22, 2016) — Maker’s Mark is celebrating American Pharoah’s Triple Crown win last year with a limited-edition commemorative bottle, available May 1.
Endorsed and supported by American Pharoah owner Ahmed Zayat, the bottle features the now-legendary blue and yellow silks of Zayat Stables.
“American Pharoah proved to an entire generation of racing fans that the impossible can be achieved,” said Zayat. “It was a joy for us to race him each and every time he took the track, and we thank Maker’s Mark for their fitting tribute to this once-in-a-lifetime racehorse.”
Maker’s Mark and the Zayats will also make a donation to the Kentucky Derby Museum in Louisville.
“Maker’s Mark has always had a strong connection with horse racing,” said Rob Samuels, chief operating officer of Maker’s Mark. “Without the support of the thoroughbred industry in the early days of our brand, Maker’s Mark simply wouldn’t exist. We’re honored to help grow the sport we love while also commemorating one of the most remarkable achievements in sports history.”
