The Kentucky Horse Park now has two Kentucky Derby winners to show off to racing fans: Go for Gin, the 1994 winner, has moved to the Hall of Champions.
The former stallion joined 2003 Derby winner Funny Cide and retirees Cigar and Da Hoss.
Kentucky-bred Go for Gin, who finished second in the Preakness and the Belmont, retired to stud at Claiborne Farm. He then was sold to Bonita Farm in Maryland, where he has lived since 2004. He finished in the money in 14 out of 19 starts and earned almost $1.4 million; his offspring, including Albert the Great, have earned more than $16.5 million on the racetrack.
Bonita Farm donated Go for Gin to the Horse Park.
Never miss a local story.
"We're glad that his connections chose to allow Go for Gin to spend the rest of his days at the Kentucky Horse Park, where he will continue to be respected, appreciated and well cared for," said John Nicholson, director of the park.
