WOODFORD COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – With the Kentucky Derby less than two months away, Woodford Reserve released their 2015 Kentucky Derby commemorative bottle on Thursday.

The limited-edition bottle features the artwork from elite equine artist Carole Andreen-Harris.

Woodford Reserve says, Harris’ main image on the bottle is bold and vibrant, featuring six horses with their jockeys in colorful silks rounding the first turn on their quest to win the big race. The historic Twin Spires are centered prominently in the background alongside an image of the packed stands of fans cheering them on to victory.

The neck band features a diamond pattern of light mint and Woodford Reserve’s signature copper color as well as the Kentucky Derby 141 date sealing the top of the commemorative bottle.

“Woodford Reserve is honored to have such an esteemed equine artist design this year’s commemorative Derby bottle artwork,” says Jason Kempf, Woodford Reserve’s brand director. “Her incredible talent and love of horseracing truly captures the spirit and passion of the Kentucky Derby.”

The commemorative bottle will hit store shelves in early April
