The 77th annual Governor’s Derby Celebration will be held in historic downtown Frankfort for the third year in a row.
“Barbaro is one of the most beloved thoroughbreds in racing history – not just for his victories, but for his heroic struggles after his Preakness injury,” said Mrs. Beshear. “John Stephen Hockensmith’s photograph truly highlights the Derby champion at the top his game, and this year’s poster is a beautiful keepsake for Barbaro fans and all racing enthusiasts.”
The 2009 Kentucky Derby Poster Artist was announced earlier this month. Take a peek inside the world and mind of Jeaneen Barnhart.
