The official 2014 Kentucky Derby Festival poster was the product of Louisville artists and twin sisters — Jeaneen Barnhart and Doreen Barnhart DeHart, the Kentucky Derby Festival’s official poster artists for the 2014 festival. They are the first artists to have their artwork chosen four different times. The siblings also collaborated on artwork for the festival poster in 1994, 1997 and 2009.
Jimmy Winkfield was the second back-to-back winning jockey of the Kentucky Derby. Winkfield raced in four consecutive Derbies, placing third, first, first and second respectively. Winkfield's back-to-back Derby wins came with His Eminence in 1901 and Alan-a-Dale in 1902. He remains the last African-American to win the Run for the Roses. Winkfield left the US for Russia, rode for the Czar of Russia and continued his riding in England, France, Spain, Poland, Austria and Hungary.
