Grave of Kentucky Derby Winner

Lawrin, the only Kentucky Derby winner (1938) from Kansas, and his sire, Insco, are buried in a suburban cul-de-sac on land that was once a horse farm.

The graves were here long before the surrounding homes, but the horses have still been treated regally, given an impressive fenced burial plot in the middle of what is now a suburban housing development.
