Kentucky Derby Oracle 2013 by Jen Ferguson, Amanda Ferguson

I collaborated with my sister, Amanda, on a art piece for the Jockey Club’s website “” centered around the Kentucky Derby. I decided to make an oracle which highlighted the horses with their different qualities and illustrate each one with their markings. Here is the result! really love what Amanda came up with the text on the Tarot cards- they are spot on if you’ve followed the horses. I’m still not sure who will win, and one of the horses on the chart isn’t running (Govenor Charlie) but I could swear the painting of “It’s my LuckyDay” winked at me, though I was putting in late hours to finish the art and it could have just been that my eyes were bleary.

Dean Haspiel helped enormously with layouts and computer work- Thank you! There is a print of the oracle for sale online at ETSY; here is the link:
