Recently Leather Goods of Spain was selected as the exclusive designer and manufacturer of the Churchill Downs Horseman’s V.I.P. Bag that will be given to the horse owners and trainers at the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 2. Horse owners and trainers will also receive these finely tailored bags at the Kentucky Oaks on May 1.

The 2009 Churchill Downs Horseman’s V.I.P. Bag will be an exclusive version of the LILO Collections Hampton’s Leather Travel Tote from Leather Goods of Spain. Created from a lightweight, buttery-soft cowhide with soft, padded and rolled handles, this bag is practical for carrying necessities around the track or a weekend getaway. Owners and trainers participating in the Kentucky Derby will receive this exquisite bag in brown. The owners and trainers participating in the Kentucky Oaks, a fillies-only race run the day before the Derby, will receive the same bag in beautiful pink leather, featuring elegant black accents on the handles and the bottom. The bags will feature the signature Churchill Downs Twin Spires logo and a coordinating luggage tag. This limited edition version will be available for purchase exclusively through the Finish Line Gift Shop at the Kentucky Derby Museum and via their Web site

“Being selected as the designer and manufacturer of the Horseman’s V.I.P. Bag is a prestigious honor that we are extremely excited about,” said Navales. “There were many exemplary designers that were in consideration. To be among their company and then chosen for this opportunity is very flattering.”
