‘Rich Strike Golden Ticket’: Churchill Downs Track Photographer Offers Photo Op With Kentucky Derby Winner

Rich Strike, winner of the G1 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs

Racing fans will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity Saturday, Nov. 26 to get up close and personal with 2022 Kentucky Derby (G1) winner Rich Strike, who became a household name with his upset at 80-1 odds in the Louisville classic.

Coady Photography is offering just 80 fans the chance to purchase a “Rich Strike Golden Ticket,” which will allow them access to the Churchill Downs paddock where they can have their picture taken with the Derby winner.

Rich Strike, a son of Keen Ice who is expected to race next year as a 4-year-old, will be making his final start of 2022 the day before in the $750,000 Clark Handicap (G1) at Churchill Downs.

“We are excited to offer this very unique opportunity to racing fans and want to thank RED TR-Racing and trainer Eric Reed for their willingness to share their Derby winner with his fans,” Coady Photography President Kurtis Coady said. “We also want to thank Churchill Downs for helping to make this event possible. We hope to partner with them and other tracks in the future for other special events.”

The cost of the Golden Ticket packages comes in single person, two people, and group of six people. Prices range between $125 and $400 and will be limited to the first 80 people who purchase one through the CoadyPhotography.com website. The price includes a photo that will be printed on the spot and autographed by Rich Strike's trainer Eric Reed. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 noon (ET).
