Next spring, the International Museum of the Horse at the Kentucky Horse Park will unveil a new, permanent exhibition featuring Triple Crown winner, Affirmed. The exhibition is supported by a loan of Affirmed's racing trophies and memorabilia from his owners, Louis and Patrice Wolfson.
"We are extremely honored and pleased that our Affirmed exhibit has found such a prestigious, magnificent home as the International Museum of the Horse at Kentucky Horse Park and look forward to an enduring and exciting relationship," Patrice Wolfson said.
A temporary exhibition opening this April in the Museum lobby will offer a preview of what is to come, and for the first time, reunites Affirmed with other Triple Crown winners, Secretariat and Seattle Slew. The 2007 exhibition will also center on the extended family that owned, trained, rode and cared for Affirmed. The 1,600 square foot exhibit will be housed near the Calumet Farm exhibition, which features Affirmed's opponent, Alydar.
The temporary Affirmed exhibition is included with park admission, as will be the permanent exhibition next year. For more information, contact Bill Cooke at 859-259-4231 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
