1935 Omaha Tac Pin
This pin honors Omaha, winner of the 1935 Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown with jockey William Saunders up. Omaha easily took the Derby, racing on the outside to win over Roman Soldier. That year he became the third Triple Crown winner in racing history, carrying on the legacy his sire, Gallant Fox, began by winning the 1930 Triple Crown. Omaha was bred at the Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky, and was owned by William Woodward at the Belair Stud Farm in Maryland. Future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons trained Omaha. Blood-Horse Magazine’s 100 Top Racehorses of the 20th Century lists Omaha as #61, and he was honored with an induction to the U.S. Racing Hall of Fame in1965. Omaha retired as a stud to Nebraska where he is buried.
