Kentucky Derby History
Ronnie Dreistadt, Outreach Educator at the Kentucky Derby Museum, presented "Derby Legends and Other 'Truths'" at Barnes & Noble on Thursday March 6th. He covered 134 years of Derby history through stories and legends.

Some of the horses and people he mentioned include Aristides, winner of the first Derby; Outlaw Frank James, one of the first "celebrities" to attend the race; Sir Barton, the first Triple Crown winner; and Secretariat, which still holds the record for the fastest running horse in the history of Derby.

This program is part of the “Kentucky Live!” series organized by the WKU Libraries.
