Secretariat, Barbaro, and Derby Collectors, hang on because this is going to be a very wild ride. The Kentucky Derby Mint Julep Glass is a time-honored tradition and probably the most widely collected piece of Derby memorabilia. On occasion, a very special glass can create an amazing demand. In conjunction with the 132nd Run For The Roses won by the ill-fated Barbaro, Secretariat.com exclusively offered this extremely rare and limited version of the official 2006 Kentucky Derby Julep Glass.
What makes this glass so unique is the track record designation representing Secretariat's phenomenal record-breaking time set in 1973. The designation is in the form of a small stopwatch symbol adjacent to Secretariat's name and the key notation showing his still-existing track record time of 1:59 2/5. Churchill Downs allowed the production of a small quantity of official 2006 "Track Record" glasses as part of a rare scheduled signing appearance with Secretariat's jockey Ron Turcotte during Derby week.
Kentucky Derby julep glasses are a wonderful historical keepsake noting the complete list of the previous winners. On rare occasions in the Derby's storied past, Churchill Downs has produced alternate versions of their annual official glass. These versions are among the most sought after by collectors, especially when their original availability is very limited. This is significant to collectors as the official 2006 Track Record Glasses will not be available for purchase through any retailer and can only be purchased through Secretariat.com.
The value of Kentucky Derby julep glasses escalate in proportion to their uniqueness and in reverse proportion to their availability. And this glass fits the bill for both. This is a one-time opportunity for Secretariat, Barbaro, and Kentucky Derby Collectors to enjoy a truly special product honoring these legendary icons of Thoroughbred racing. Available with the option of being hand-signed by Ron Turcotte.
