1896 Ben Brush Tac Pin
This pin honors Ben Brush, who won the 1896 Kentucky Derby despite a bad stumble out of the gate. Ben Brush, with jockey Willie Simms up, managed to pull ahead of favorite Ben Elder to win the race. After the Derby ended, reporters said Simms’ spurs had cut into Ben Brush’s sides so much it caused the jockey to cry with remorse. Ben Brush was bred at Runnymede Farm near Paris, Kentucky, owned by Michael F. Dwyer and trained by Edward D. Brown and Hardy Campbell Jr.
A Kentucky Derby Museum Exclusive.
