The Kentucky Derby Museum has completed upates to its Winner’s Circle Exhibit to include Mystik Dan (Goldencents)’s victory in this year’s 150th running of the race.

Mike Prather, a local artist who was first commissioned by the Museum to airbrush a replica Derby horse in 1999, captured all of Mystik Dan’s unique markings and details to match how he looked crossing the finish line at Churchill Downs May 4. The replica jockey was also given a makeover with the team’s silks.

The new addition to the exhibit includes items on loan which highlight the historic Oaks/Derby double win by jockey Brian Hernandez, Jr. and trainer Kenny McPeek: a halter and a horseshoe worn by Mystik Dan and a halter and a horseshoe worn by Thorpedo Anna (Fast Anna).

After taking selfies with the Derby winners, visitors can dive into the story of their journey to victory by learning about the winning connections through a series of self-guided panels in the exhibit.
