It's Kentucky Derby time and if you know someone who is a big horse racing fan, have we got the perfect gift. You can now own a piece of a former Derby winner. A piece of poo, that is. That's correct, you could own a piece of poo from former Derby winner Silver Charm for just $200. Yep, you read that right: $200 for horse poo. Each jar, created by artist Coleman Larkin, comes with a card authenticating the contents as a genuine “Ky Derby Turd.” The 1997 Derby winner, who is retired from stud duty, lives now at Old Friends Farm in Georgetown, and sales of the poo will benefit the Thoroughbred retirement facility. Supplies are limited.
