Derby Museum American Pharoah Exhibit Opens May 1

American PharoahTouting "artifacts never before seen by the public," the Kentucky Derby Museum announced it will open an American Pharoah-themed exhibit before another horse makes a run at the Triple Crown.

Starting May 1, the museum will provide close looks at the champion colt's connections: owner Ahmed Zayat, trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Victor Espinoza. Mainly, though, the exhibit features the horse with a kind temperament and unmatched talent that broke the Triple Crown drought.
 
Last June American Pharoah became the first horse in 37 years to win thoroughbred racing's Triple Crown - the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes

Along with interactive interviews, items on site for early run of the display will include the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Belmont Stakes and Triple Crown trophies on loan from Zayat Stables. The museum notes it's the first time they'll be available together publicly.

Baffert and Espinoza have also lent items from their "personal collections" along with time for interactive interviews that are part of the exhibit.

Regular hours at the Derby Museum, 704 Central Avenue, are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.

Also recently added there is a refreshed version of "The Greatest Race," the 360-degree film now played in high, 4K definition.
