New Kentucky Derby Museum Stable Area Named in Honor of Penny Chenery - Horse Racing News
Kentucky Derby Museum on Sunday announces that its new stables will be renamed in honour of Penny Chenery, the winner of the Kentucky Derby, Riva Ridge, and the secretariat. Stable Helen B. "Penny" Chenery will be home to the museum's thoroughbred and pet animals and will be part of the museum's $6.5 million extension program.
The building of the stable (see picture below) and the further development of the museum will start in mid-May. This museum will be open throughout the whole duration of the exhibition. It also opened its latest exhibition, The Museum of Winding Colors: Family Fillies. In 1988, this year, 1988, the 30-year history of Kentucky Derby victory is celebrated.
The youngest mare to have won the derby, she was one of only three. This exhibition shows the winner of Colors' Kentucky Derby Golden Cups, which was presented to the Klein family's horses. Recently added to the museum's collections, it has been repaired, complete with rein and hockey on the cups.
This exhibition shows the birth of the Kentucky Oaks as a debut event and emphasizes the career of several well-known fillies, among them the only two other fillys to have won the derby: Regret (1915) and Generation Risks (1980). Gain colors: Families are part of the general entrance to the museum.
This exhibition runs until August 31. Every year the charity honours the victorious youngster, who owned and coached the former Kentucky Derby champions. The 2017 winners Always Dreaming coach Todd Pletcher accepted the renowned Neiman Award presented to him by four-time Kentucky Derby coach D. Wayne Lukas.
There was also a presentation of the memorial ring for John Velazquez, the winner of the young hockey competition. Further high points of the daily were a rackside chats with the former Patti Cooksey who was the top three ('80,'81,'83) women in North America and the second women who ever drove in the Kentucky Derby.

The Hall of Fame Joiney Gary Stevens and the Hall of Fame coach D. Wayne Lukas joined the two Kentucky Derby victories as coach/jockey and other stories about their career.
