Calumet's Devil's Red and Blue Racing Silks

Our Mims was bred and born at Calumet Farm on March 8, 1974. Bill Cooke, Director of the International Museum of the Horse at the Kentucky Horse Park, has written a comprehensive look at Calumet's history. His online exhibit was written with intensive insight by Margaret Glass, longtime farm secretary.

Of particular interest in the online exhibit is the page titled "The Years of Transition." That page chronicles Calumet's successes in the 1960's and 1970's, and mentions Our Mims' Eclipse Award winning 3-year-old campaign.

Mims's trophies are now at the IMH in the Calumet exhibit.

We can thank the foresight of Mrs. Glass that these priceless and irreplaceable trophies are available for the public to see and did not become part of the bankruptcy proceedings against the farm.

Also at the IMH, you can see some of Mims' races as part of the Calumet multimedia exhibit.
