This will be the third year that the Capital City Museum, a City of Frankfort Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Sites facility, has brought a horse to Kentucky‘s capital city for this event.
Disturbingthepeace will be in a portable stall next to the Capital City Museum at 325 Ann Street throughout this event.
The Governor‘s Derby Celebration will begin at 9AM and continue until 1PM.
Visitors are invited to get to know this beautiful animal ―up close and personal‖ on the greatest day of horse -racing in America.
Previous thoroughbred appearances at the museum have been especially popular with children.
Disturbingthepeace retired in 2004.
During his racing career he achieved eight wins, four seconds, and four thirds in twenty-four races.
Outstanding wins were at the Triple End Breeders‘ Cup Invitational, the Bing Crosby Breeders‘ Cup Handicap, and the Pat O‘Brien Handicap.
Old Friends president and founder Michael Blowen has said, ―We‘re honored to have Disturbingthepeace at Old Friends.
He was a tough race horse and was owned by writer-producer David Milch.
Disturbingthepeace is poorly named because he‘s very quiet and kind.‖ Milch worked on many successful TV shows including Hill Street Blues, LA Law, and Deadwood.
The Capital City Museum will be open to the public all day.
Some of its exhibits have been renovated over the winter, and there will be plenty of new things to see.
There is no charge for visiting Disturbingthepeace or for touring the museum.
However, donations to help the Old Friends farm fulfill its mission of providing a safe haven for retired thoroughbred horses will be most sincerely appreciated.
A plentiful supply of Frankfort Heritage Press books and Capital City Museum ―Lost Frankfort‖ Christmas tree ornaments will be available for purchase at the museum.

This is an only slightly smaller turn-out than expected in perfect weather.
The ominous weather conditions did keep most of the older cars at home in their garages.
Nevertheless, Mustangs from 1965 to the 2014 model year were present.
There was a sampling of Camaros, Challengers, and other makes.
A relatively rare AMC Javelin put in an appearance too.
As usual, participants came from all across central Kentucky and bordering states.
This year, the Bluegrass Mustang Club – based in Lexington – won the trophy for largest car club representation.
This broke the streak held since the first Round-Up by the Falls City Mustang Club, many of the members of which are from southern Indiana.
The award for longest distance travelled to the show went to Melinda Chaffin of Culloden, West Virginia.
The President’s Choice Award, given to an outstanding automobile selected by the president of the Frankfort Mustangs Club, went to Josh Demarcus and his 2003 Mustang Cobra.
Demarcus has made upgrading the car a very serious hobby since his return from military active duty in Afghanistan.
The Sponsor’s Award, presented by the co -director of the Frankfort Department of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Sites, went to Edwin Wilson and his 2010 Mustang GT.
The car’s “IM BLUE” vanity license plate spoke volumes about the striking appearance of this lovingly enhanced machine. The 8th Annual Kentucky Pony Car Round-Up flourished last Saturday despite the day -long threat of rain – the great enemy of car shows.

Tom Fugate, president of the Mustangs The 9th Annual Kentucky Pony -Car Round-Up will take place on the last Saturday of April, 2014 – again at Juniper Hill Park.
