Louisville Derby Clock

The Louisville Clock (often called the Derby Clock) is a 40-foot high ornamental clock once located on Fourth Street in Louisville, Kentucky. It was designed in the appearance like a gigantic wind-up toy, incorporating themes of Kentucky culture, especially the Kentucky Derby horse race. Eight ornamental columns support an elevated 8-lane race track. At noon each day, a bugle announced the beginning of a race between five hand-carved statues of figures with local significance: George Rogers Clark, Daniel Boone, Thomas Jefferson, King Louis XVI of France and the Belle of Louisville. Several mechanized sculptures of notable past Louisvillians watched from above in a Victorian-esque Gazebo: Mary Anderson, D.W. Griffith, Zachary Taylor, Henry Watterson and Oliver Cooke.
