Authenticity__Churchill Downs Horse Cloth Purse
In 2014, Churchill Downs® approached Tokens to make gifts from the beams and trusses of the Racetrack's paddock built in 1903. Churchill Downs planned to incorporate this structure into the second story "Grandstand Pavilion" but building codes made its use cost prohibitive so it was carefully dismantled in 2013. The wood has been transferred to Tokens for a new life celebrating Churchill Downs' history and pageantry. Further, Kelly who handles the locker room shared with us cycled out and well-worn horse towels and thus the partnership was extended beyond just wood.
