1951 Count Turf Tac Pin

$5.00

This pin honors Count Turf, winner of the 1951 Kentucky Derby with U.S. Racing Hall of Fame jockey Conn McCreary up. Despite running against two highly-favored horses, Battle Morn and Counterpoint, Count Turf beat the odds to come in first at the finish. He came from a great thoroughbred dynasty: his grandsire, 1928 Derby winner Reigh Count, had produced his sire, 1943 Triple Crown winner Count Fleet. He was bred by Dr. and Mrs. Frank Porter-Miller of Runnymeade Farm in Paris, Kentucky, owned by Jack Joseph Amiel and trained by Sol RutchickA Kentucky Derby Museum Exclusive. Pin measures 0.75 X 1".
