We are a bit different in that we give back to the thoroughbreds that run in these races year after year. We are avid supporters of non-profit rehabilitation and rescue organizations for off the track thoroughbreds including the Kentucky Humane Society. We also support other four legged friends at Adopt Me! Bluegrass Pet Rescue.
Not familiar with Derby Glasses and their value, here is a small tidbit. Every year for the Kentucky Derby a glass is produced in limited quantity with a specific design intended to be used to enjoy your Mint Julep on Derby Day. These colorful glasses feature graphics with a list of all the previous derby winners. They started producing them officially in 1940 however there were unofficial glasses made in 1938 and 1939. Not familiar with the Kentucky Derby? The Kentucky Derby draws an average of 150,000 people every year. It is labeled “ The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.” The Run for the Roses takes place the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY.
