Learn About Secretariat This February

Many famous horses have set their hooves on the famous ground at Churchill Downs over the years. The racetrack’s history goes all the way back to 1875 and in that time, legends have been made. But there is perhaps no Derby horse quite as famous as Secretariat. Learn all about this incredible horse at a special exhibit at the Kentucky Derby Museum.

America’s Horse Exhibit

Secretariat is known as America’s horse because this name is famous everywhere. It’s pretty impressive that a horse could rise to such fame, but the story of this horse resonates with many people.

Secretariat at the Kentucky Derby Museum

The exhibit is very impressive, using visuals, video and technology to bring this story to life in a new way. You will even get a chance to see Secretariat’s famous Triple Crown races play out on a 10-foot wall. There is also some Hollywood memorabilia on display, including costumes worn in the movie about Secretariat and many artifacts that help to tell the story of this horse.

Admission is $18 per person and the exhibit runs daily all month long from 8 am to 5 pm. Find the Derby Museum at 704 Central Avenue and find out about one of the most famous racehorses in history. You’ll also find that the Derby Museum is just a short drive outside of Shively. This is more than a neighborhood. Shively is its own city. And once, it was known for having some rather wild ways. Shively boomed in the post-Prohibition era before becoming a quiet community full of pretty homes. That's how it still looks today. Go see Shively and find out which of these homes look pretty to you.
