LORETTA, Ky. (WTVQ) – Triple Crown winner Justify is getting another honor.
Maker’s Mark has announced it is releasing a commemorative bottle featuring the one of the greatest thoroughbreds in horse racing.
“As Justify takes his place among the greatest racehorses of all time, Maker’s Mark is excited to celebrate his accomplishments with the release of a limited-edition commemorative Maker’s Mark bottle that not only pays tribute to Justify’s stunning run, but also supports charitable causes,” Marker’s Mark said in a statement.
In conjunction with the bottle release, Maker’s Mark says it, along with the owners of Justify: WinStar Farm, China Horse Club, Starlight Racing and Head of Plains Partners, will make a significant donation to benefit the Kentucky Derby Museum in Louisville.
Maker’s Mark says another contribution will also be made to the Ann Hanley Parkinson’s Research Fund which helps underwrite work on the disease at the University of Kentucky, a cause that is dear to the hearts of the WinStar Farm team.
The limited-edition Maker’s Mark Justify bottle will be available at select locations nationwide beginning this fall and will be priced at $59.99.
A signing event for the commemorative bottle will be held at the Kentucky Derby Museum during the week before the Breeders’ Cup races at Churchill Downs this fall, according to Maker’s Mark.
Details will be announced at a later date.
