The Jim Irsay Collection, the traveling museum of iconic artifacts from rock music, American history and pop culture, owned by Indianapolis Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay will debut the saddle worn by racehorse legend and Triple Crown winner Secretariat at the free Las Vegas event taking place at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center on Saturday, March 4.
Secretariat’s saddle, which was worn during the 1973 Triple Crown, will join the extensive collection of historical artifacts including Irsay’s world-famous guitar and instrument collection. Other artifacts also making their debut at the Las Vegas show include a “Wilson” volleyball from the 2000 film, Castaway, and the “Golden Ticket” from the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
This will be the ninth free exhibition Irsay has hosted, with past stops in Nashville, Tenn., Austin, Tex., Washington, DC, Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Indianapolis and San Francisco.
With a passion for history, rock ‘n roll and pop culture, Jim Irsay curated the robust collection of memorabilia from some of America’s most iconic figures and historically significant moments. Spanning centuries, the collection features everything from documents signed by presidents including George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, to the musical instruments owned by The Beatles, Prince, Eric Clapton, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and more.
The March 4 event will also feature a free concert by The Jim Irsay Band, led by Irsay on vocals. The band will be joined Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and Stephen Stills (Crosby, Stills & Nash; Buffalo Springfield) and 22-time Grammy winner Vince Gill. The evening also will include a special tribute to the late David Crosby, legendary member of Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Byrds, who recently passed away.
