1922 Morvich Tac Pin
This pin honors Morvich, winner of the 1922 Kentucky Derby with jockey Albert Johnson up. Morvich was bred in Napa, California by Adolph B. Spreckles, who sold him off quickly to Benjamin Block, claiming he was an “ugly cripple” and would never win a race. Despite his breeder’s dire assertions, Morvich began a successful career at age two and, at age three, entered the 1922 Derby as the betting favorite. Morvich came out victorious, after having maintained a steady lead until the last stretch where he won over Bet Mosie in a push. He was trained by U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee Fred Berlew.
