VERSAILLES, Ky. (FOX 56) — This year’s Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby bottle honors one of the greatest horses to ever hit the track.
The 2023 special release Derby bottle celebrates the 50th anniversary of Secretariat winning the 1973 Derby — an event deemed one of the most iconic in racing history where the world’s most famous horse won in a record-breaking time of 1:59.40.
The bottle features artwork by Kentucky native Jaime Corum and depicts Secretariat in the Winner’s Circle at Churchill Downs.
“This is our most collectible Derby bottle yet, as Secretariat is perhaps the most revered and most loved racehorse in history,” Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall said. “Even 50 years after his stunning achievement, Secretariat’s Triple Crown run is still considered one of the most iconic achievements in sports.”
The bottle retails for $55 and is available for global purchase. A special presale begins March 1 on ReserveBar.
