The Kentucky Derby Diamond Jubilee - 1875-1949

This large (9-1/2" x 12-1/4") hard-bound book is entitled The Kentucky Derby Diamond Jubilee 1875 - 1949. Subtitled “A Pictorial History of America’s Greatest Sporting Event,” it was issued under the auspices of Churchill Downs, Inc. and edited and compiled by Brownie Leach. Front cover features a full-color photo of the Churchill Downs grandstand and Kentucky Derby Trophy. Dust jacket has a wraparound black and white photo of the Grandstand. Front inside cover and flyleaf has a large black and white photo of the Churchill Downs complex (stable area at top) with 50 numbered and identified areas. Back inside cover and flyleaf has another large black and white photo of the Churchill Downs complex (stable area at bottom) with 43 additional numbered and identified areas.

Chapter 1: This is Churchill Downs
Chapter 2: This is the Kentucky Derby
Chapter 3: This is Col. Matt J. Winn

Subsequent chapters devote two pages each to every Kentucky Derby from the first one in 1875 through the 74th one in 1948, including photos, statistics, and a synopsis of what was going on in America and other parts of the world that year. Fascinating stuff presented in a conversational manner and not dry or dull at all! An extensive Data Section begins on page 165 and includes Winning Horses, Winning Jockeys, Owners, Breeders, Trainers, and numerous other categories of statistics – even Derby Day weather!

Book contains 192 pages and is in pristine condition, having been protected by its dust jacket all these years. The dust jacket itself is a little ragged at its edges, but completely intact.

As an added bonus, there’s an enclosed carbon copy (when was the last time you saw an actual carbon copy produced via a sheet of carbon paper – on pink onionskin no less???)  of a 2-page typewritten letter from W. P. Favorite (presumably this book’s original owner) to Ben Collins dated July 26, 1949 thanking him for the book and sharing family and business news. The letter states, “Careful reading of it [the book] would make anyone an expert on the Derby and Churchill Downs.” But having read this book ourselves, our opinion is that it will make you a mini expert on 75 years of American history that virtually none of us was here to live through ourselves. In fact, we predict that you, too, will wind up doing dozens of Google searches, just like we did, as you find tidbit after tidbit about which you absolutely HAVE to know more! Happy reading – and Googling! Be sure to see our companion 1949 Kentucky Derby Story magazine and our 1974 100th Derby magazine, too! Tell a friend.

1949 Kentucky Derby Story magazine

This is a very special 75th Derby issue of The Courier-Journal & Times Magazine (Louisville, KY) published on Wednesday, May 4, 1949, four days prior to the Kentucky Derby’s Diamond Jubilee running on Saturday, May 7, 1949. Front cover features a large photograph of Col. Matt Winn, Churchill Downs President, surrounded by photos of “his” Derby winners. (As an interesting historical footnote, Matt Winn was a lad of 13 when the very first Kentucky Derby was run in 1875. His father owned a Louisville grocery store and Matt watched the inaugural Derby from the bed of his dad’s horse-drawn delivery wagon that they’d driven into the Louisville Jockey Club’s “free gate area,” today’s Churchill Downs infield. Col. Winn subsequently saw every one of the first 75 Derbys, as commemorated on the official 1949 Kentucky Derby mint julep glass that has his picture, signature, and “He has seen them all!” Sadly, this Diamond Jubilee running was his last. Col. Winn died five months later on October 6, 1949 at the age of 88. It was the end of a Kentucky Derby era.)

Magazine contents include “The Derby is More Than a Race” by Marion Porter; “The Ten Best” by Jerry McNerney; “What the Well-Dressed Horse Will Wear” by Catherine Goose; “Kentucky Through Your Car Window” by Joe Creason; “Kentucky Sets a Fine Table” by Helen Lawton; “75 Years of the Derby” by Earl Ruby; and several articles about Matt Winn, complete with great photos! Also contains several full-color photos of Churchill Downs.

As if all this weren’t fascinating enough, you’ll love the advertisements, especially the photos of the 1949 Buick Roadmaster, Ford Coupe, Oldsmobile 88 and two Pontiacs, a station wagon and a convertible. The men’s and women’s fashions are also quite interesting, too!

This oversize (11" x 15-1/4") 65-year-old magazine is a veritable goldmine of Kentucky and Derby history – 95 pages of it! Surprisingly good vintage condition. Pages are loose, having never been stapled at the spine. Some are slightly ragged at their outside edges, and of course the entire magazine is yellowed with age, but everything is intact and there are very few actual tears. Be sure to see our companion The Kentucky Derby Diamond Jubilee book and our 1974 100th Derby magazine, too! Tell a friend.

Vintage Kentucky Derby can/glass holder

This is a waaay vintage Kentucky Derby foam can or glass holder we acquired at an estate sale as part of a marvelous collection of 1950's Kentucky Derby memorabilia. Standing 4-3/8" tall, the bottom diameter is 3-1/2" and the flexible holder tapers upward to a 3" diameter top that stretches to fit snugly around a beverage can or most any glass to keep its contents cold longer. Holder is a deep mustard yellow color with brown printing that says “The Kentucky Derby,” “The Run for the Roses,” “Louisville, Kentucky,” and “Huggers Mfg. - Baytown, Texas, Huggs’em Hot or Cold™.” Brown artwork includes a surprisingly detailed drawing of four horses and riders racing down the track in front of the Churchill Downs clubhouse, as well as what I assume was the polar bear logo of this long-gone company. For a piece of foam that’s over fifty years old, this nifty old can holder is in amazingly good condition. Still very flexible and not at all hard or crumbly. Several old discoloration marks and the bottom is “cracked,” but this thing still works exactly as advertized: “Huggs’em Hot or Cold!” (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

1969 Kentucky Derby decanter

This is a Jim Beam Kentucky Derby pink roses decanter from 1969. The front features Churchill Downs, complete with spires, two sprays of pink roses, and says “Churchill Downs, Home of the 95th Kentucky Derby.” The back features a large horseshoe with two additional sprays of pink roses and says “95th Run for the Roses.” Inside the horseshoe is a drawing of Aristides, the first Kentucky Derby winner on May 17,1875. The front of the stopper says “Run for the Roses” and the back says “Churchill Downs,” but these words are currently mostly covered up with the remnants of the original U.S. Internal Revenue liquor stamp strip, which extends down the bottle back. Since the bottle is empty, of course the stamp strip was slit in order to gain access to its contents, but we have made no attempt to clean up or remove the portion of the strip that remains. 11" tall x 7" wide x 2-1/4" deep. Bottom says “Creation of James B. Beam Distilling Co., KY - DRB-230, Genuine Regal China, © C. Miller 1969, 145, Liquor Bottle”. To the right of that are three angled letters that appear to be DHH or maybe DHN. Both the decanter and the stopper are in excellent condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. Some loss of gilding to a few of the gilded letters. Whether you’re a Kentucky Derby collector, a Jim Beam collector, or “just” someone who appreciates beautiful objects, you’re sure to love this fine old decanter! (Click on picture for more images.)

1974 Kentucky Derby knife

Yes! This unique little gadget from the centennial 1974 Kentucky Derby really is a knife! Looking more like a beautiful 1-1/2" diameter mother of pearl pendant encased in a brass ring with a hanging loop on top, one side says “100th running of the Ky. Derby, May 4, 1974, Churchill Downs, Louisville, KY” and the other side features a highly detailed horse’s head in the center with “Aristides 1874” above and “Cannonade 1974” below. Very pretty indeed. But surprise – out pops a small curved knife blade from each side, both still dangerously sharp after all these years! Amazing! Pity the poor mugger who attempts to attack the lady wearing this lovely pendant on a chain around her neck! Could also be put on a keychain. But since we’ve never seen another like it, probably its best use is as a treasured display item! Excellent vintage condition, with only one minor defect: the “t” in the middle of Aristides’ name has rubbed away. No nicks, chips, cracks, or dings anywhere. Brass has developed a nice patina. Blades are shiny and sharp. Truly an outstanding addition to any Kentucky Derby collection. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

1974 Kentucky Derby Norman Rockwell plate

“The Weigh-In” is a collector plate by Norman Rockwell in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary 1974 Kentucky Derby. It depicts Hall of Fame jockey Eddie Arcaro, five-time Kentucky Derby winner, dressed in full race regalia and holding his saddle, being weighed in prior to the race by a very intent Derby official. Eddie Arcaro (1916-1997) won more American Classic Races than any other jockey in history and is the only jockey to have won the Triple Crown twice – 1941 on Whirlaway and 1948 on Citation. His first Kentucky Derby win was in 1938 on Lawrin, and he went on to win four more Derbys – 1941 on Whirlaway, 1945 on Hoop, Jr., 1948 on Citation, and 1952 on Hill Gail. Norman Rockwell (1894-1978), America’s most beloved and most widely-recognized illustrator, was a prolific artist famous for his depictions of American life, culture, and values, many prints appearing as covers for “The Saturday Evening Post.” “The Weigh-In” was featured on the Post cover on September 6, 1958. This beautiful full-color collector plate is 8-1/2" in diameter and rimmed in gold. The back has extensive gold text about both Norman Rockwell and Eddie Arcaro, and is also marked as Gorham Fine China. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or gold loss.

1974 100th Derby magazine

This is a special 100th Derby issue of The Courier-Journal & Times Magazine (Louisville, KY) published on Sunday, April 28, 1974, six days prior to the centennial running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 4, 1974. Divided into two sections – Derby and Travel – contents include “The Making of a Legend” (subtitled “How a two-minute horse race, abetted by colorful people and odd events, grew into a legend in only one century”) by John Ed Pearce; “Derby Day” by Milli Hamilton; “A Very Special Rite of Spring” by Barry Bingham Sr. (Chairman of the Board of the Courier-Journal and The Louisville Times); “Travel in a Year of History” (subtitled “How a premature Kentucky bicentennial lures us to retrace pioneer paths close to home” by Joe Creason; “A Photographer’s Trip into History” featuring numerous color photos of Kentucky sites  by H. Harold Davis; and “Some Nearby Pathways on a Tankful” by Bryan Woolley. Numerous marvelous photos and ads, including one for our 1974 Kentucky Derby Norman Rockwell plate listed immediately above! If you’re too young to remember the 70s, you’ll laugh out loud and shake your head in utter disbelief at what passed for men’s fashions in 1974. The full-color JCPenney ad on page 17 is an absolute hoot – “fashion-wise doubleknit trios” that include a truly garish second pair of flare leg checkered slacks! This oversize (10-1/4" x 13") 40-year-old magazine is a veritable goldmine of Kentucky and Derby history – 160 pages of it! Excellent vintage condition. No damage to front cover, back cover, or stapled spine. Interior pages are also undamaged and slightly yellowed with age. Truly a remarkable magazine!
