Clad in neckties, blazers, bright colors (with wide-brimmed hats for the ladies), Kentucky Derby patrons wager on their equines of choice, but not before purchasing a Mint Julep and a racing program. These vintage guides were issued at the 1941 and 1942 events, respectively. Includes: 1941: an 8-page guide whose entries include Triple Crown winner “Whirlaway"; 1942: an 8-page program with derby winner “Shut Out” among the betting interests. Both items are crease-free with vintage penciled notations indicating winners, prices and times.
