1886 Ben Ali Tac Pin
This pin honors Ben Ali, who won the 1886 Derby with jockey P. Duffy up. He was named after his owner, James Ben Ali Haggin, who stayed in the United States after he struck gold in California during the 1849 Gold Rush. Haggin caused a series of boycotts at Churchill Downs by horse owners over a dispute on betting techniques. Ben Ali was bred, like many of the former Derby winners, by Daniel Swigert at Elmendorf Farms.
A Kentucky Derby Museum Exclusive.
