Churchill Downs is the most famous race track in the world and home to the Kentucky Derby. Each horseshoe comes from the backside and has been worn by one of the thoroughbreds at Churchill. We don’t clean the horseshoes, part of the charm is the material in the grooves, but we do tie a little gingham bow on the neck and shrink wrap, keeping the ‘mystery material’ inside. Then a colorful sticker indicating that this is, in fact, ‘A Dirty Ol’ Horseshoe from Churchill Downs’ is placed on the front. Then we add a ‘baby bat’ from the folks here at Louisville Slugger and shrink again allowing the bat to be removed and the horseshoe to remain in tact. Finally topped off with a hand made gingham bow. Bat is 7.5″ long
The only horseshoe licensed by Churchill Downs; a CD sticker is on the back of each for authenticity.
Perfect as favors for your Derby Party or any event; truly unique. You might have a shoe from a future Triple Crown Winner!
Horseshoes will vary in size, generally around 5″ x 5″.
