1919 Sir Barton Tac Pin
This pin honors Sir Barton, winner of the 1919 Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown with U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee and 1916 Derby-winning jockey Johnny Loftus up. He was bred by John E. Madden and owned by J.K.L. Ross at Hamburg Place in Lexington, KY, a stud farm that had also produced 1914 Derby winner and award-winner Old Rosebud. Sir Barton had been trained by H. Guy Bedwell as the rabbit for his stable mate Billy Kelley, but won the Derby by five lengths. Four days later he won the Preakness and soon after took the Belmont Stakes to become the first Triple Crown winner. Sir Barton was voted the 1919 Horse of the Year and was later inducted into the U.S. Racing Hall of Fame in 1957. He is ranked #49 in Blood-Horse Magazine’s Top 100 Racehorses of the 20th Century.
