Title The Kentucky Derby Race Game
Description This is an aluminum board with a painted image of a racetrack. There are patrons, a clubhouse and horses visible around the outer edges. The imprint on the right side reads "The Kentucky Derby Race Game." The centerpiece consists of a long clock-like device that is meant to rotate the horses around the track. A long red arm comes out of this device and has three horses and riders attached to a wire bar. At the end of the bar is a wheel that helps move the horses around the track. There is a long metal piece that extends outward and acts as the starting gate for the horses.
