IMH Exhibit in NY Times Photo

The International Museum of the Horse's exhibit, "Affirmed: The Making of a Champion," is clearly visible in a recent New York Times article about 1978 Triple Crown winner Affirmed's owner, Patrice Wolfson, and jockey, Steve Cauthen. With American Pharoah's recent Triple Crown achievement, Affirmed has received some extra attention, as the last Thoroughbred horse to win all three major races (the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes).

Praise for KHP from the New York Public Library

The Kentucky Horse Park received a nice blog write-up from the New York Public Library earlier this month. The piece, written by Miranda McDermott of the Bronx Library Center, combines the author's past first-hand experiences with the park's current offerings to give the reader a nice idea of what the Kentucky Horse Park offers.

We should note that the Horses of the World show mentioned in the blog is now referred to as the Breeds Barn Show.
