Mar 26, 2013

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - It's almost six weeks until the elite 3-year-old racehorses charge down the track at Churchill Downs in this year's Kentucky Derby, but the trophy is already waiting on the winner.
 
Marc Forbes of New England Sterling of Massachusetts delivered the trophy to the Louisville track on Monday. He says the 14-karat gold trophy takes about 2,000 man hours to create. The company has made the winner's trophy since 1975.
