Limited edition Woodford Reserve bottles to be sold for Derby 147

Bourbon collectors have a chance to get their hands on a limited edition bottle of Woodford Reserve.

Horse racing hall of fame jockey John Velazquez and award-winning horse trainer H. Graham Motion signed the bottles Tuesday at Stoneware and Company.

Around 500 of the signed Kentucky Derby 147 bottles will be up for grabs, with some of the proceeds going toward the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.

“Some of the proceeds go to the retired horses, so it’s very important to us,” Velazquez said. “It’s how we make our living and take care of the horses after they leave the racetrack. So, it is a great cause for us and making sure the horses are taken care of.”

The bottles are numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity.

The presale for the limited edition bottles starts on April 15; they will be available on stonewareandco.com.
