Employees with Bluegrass Contracting Corp. worked Wednesday on the new Isaac Murphy Memorial Art Garden and Trailhead at East Third Street and Midland Avenue in Lexington. The garden is a community effort, financed by private and public funds, to honor contributions black people have made to the Thoroughbred industry and is named in honor of Isaac Murphy, the legendary jockey who won the Kentucky Derby in 1884, 1890 and 1891. The garden is also a trailhead for the Legacy Trail. Once completed, the 10-mile walking and biking trail will connect the East End with the Kentucky Horse Park, where Isaac Murphy is buried. The project is expected to be completed by November.
