Woodford Reserve has been the “Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby” for the past 18 years. It also sponsors a Grade I stakes race, The Woodford Reserve Turf Classic, which runs on Kentucky Derby Day, May 7, 2016, and has become one of Thoroughbred racing’s premier turf events with a $500,000 purse.

Since 1978, award-winning artist Pauly has painted some of the finest horses and jockeys in the world and is the Official Artist of American Pharoah – Triple Crown Winner. The artist is well respected in the equine industry where he travels around the world photographing his subjects in their natural settings. Primarily working with oils and watercolors, his artwork is known for its accuracy, energy, sentiment and celebration of equine achievement. His work has been displayed throughout the world at fine art galleries, on television and in books. He is a contributor to various racing charities and organizations as well as a devoted supporter of The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF).

His painting “Barreling Down” is featured on the front of the Woodford Reserve bottle. The image on the bottle features a closeup, impressionistic look into the big race as two thoroughbreds and jockeys are neck and neck. The bright blue sky of a spring day in Kentucky shines through in the background as the horses race towards the finish line.

The bottle’s neck band features crisp black and Woodford Reserve’s signature copper color with the Kentucky Derby 142 date and Thomas Allen Pauly’s signature sealing the top of the bottle. A neck tag provides details about the product and the artist.

Woodford Reserve is honored to collaborate with an artist of such high caliber for this year’s commemorative Derby bottle,” said Jason Kempf, Woodford Reserve brand director. “His years of experience, esteemed skillset in painting and passion for the equine industry correlate perfectly with the Kentucky Derby.
