Giddy-Up!

When you don your Derby Day-best, no other cufflinks will do. This winning set is fashioned out of wood sourced from one of the Kentucky Derby's most storied sites, Churchill Downs. These one-of-a-kind accessories are made from authentic wooden beams and trusses from the 1903-1923 paddock and let Derby devotees proudly wear a piece of this beloved site's history. The wood supported the paddock in which prized thoroughbred horses were showcased and mounted before races. Finished with sterling silver bezels. Officially licensed by Churchill Downs Racetrack, each pair of cufflinks comes gift-boxed with a certificate of authenticity. Handmade in Berkeley, California.

Disappointed when the MTA filled in the "Y" cutout of their classic subway tokens, Ward Wallau was inspired to find a fun way to incorporate the unaltered tokens into cufflinks. He wanted to prove to the MTA that the original tokens were worthy of celebrating and repurposing and, after 11 years of "no," Ward became the first licensee of the New York City MTA. Since that time, this "authenticity hound," has assembled and grew his team of artisans, production staff, and authenticators in Berkeley, California, where they re-imagine nostalgic artifacts as unique gifts that tell a story. Ward loves breathing new life into things that already exist, be it letterpress blocks, a wooden seat from Wrigley Field, or a bat broken at a Major League baseball game. "This business is ever-challenging, dynamic, and satisfying," he says. "It's not a good day if you don't learn something new!"

    Comments about UncommonGoods Kentucky Derby Churchill Downs Cufflinks:

    My husband and I give each other the traditional gift for each anniversary (i.e. first = paper, second = cotton, etc.). I was a bit stumped by the fifth anniversary gif - wood - at first, until i came across this awesome gift. My husband is a Kentucky native and has fond memories of attending the derby at Churchill Downs. He loves to French cuff shirts and unique cuff links, so I knew I found a total winner in these cufflinks. And he ADORES them!
