Kentucky 2001

The Kentucky quarter, the fifth and last quarter in the 2001 series, shows a mansion with a thoroughbred racehorse behind a fence and the words "My Old Kentucky Home."

Kentucky was the first state on the western frontier to join the Union and home of the longest running annual horse race in the country, the Kentucky Derby, which is followed by horseracing lovers all over the world.  The famous Kentucky Bluegrass country is also grazing ground for some of the world's finest racehorses.

Behind the horse, you'll also see another famous symbol of Kentucky, the Bardstown house where Stephen Foster wrote the state song, "My Old Kentucky Home."
