Woodford Reserve 149th Kentucky Derby 2023 pays tribute to the Kentucky Derby with the release of the 2023 commemorative Derby bottle. As the Presenting Sponsor of the Kentucky Derby, Woodford Reserve celebrates "The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports" by releasing a limited edition bottle each year.
The 2023 bottle features the artwork of Kentucky native Jaime Corum, known for her breathtaking horse portraits. The painting on the bottle captures Secretariat, the 1973 Derby winner, in the Winner's Circle at Churchill Downs. This year's release is especially significant as it commemorates the 50th anniversary of Secretariat's historic victory, still the fastest at 1:59 2/5.
