Vintage Kentucky Derby Footage from Advanced Media Integration: 1958 Tim Tam Wins
Recently, while transferring some old reels of 8mm film to DVD, we came across some Vintage Kentucky Derby footage shot in 1958. The transferred 8mm film footage contains some of the pre-race festivities as well as the actually race itself. During the 84th running of the derby, the horse named Tim Tam would go on to win the race as well as the Preakness Stakes later that year. However, Tim Tam would suffer an injury during the final stretch of the Belmont Stakes and finish second, preventing him from winning the coveted American Triple Crown. The injury would essentially end Tim Tams racing days, but he would go on to have a successful siring career. With our client’s permission and the 141st running of the derby this weekend, we wanted to share this vintage horseracing footage.
1958 Kentucky Derby: Tim Tam was a successful racing horse throughout his career. He won a number of high profile races including the Flamingo Stakes, the Florida Derby, 1958 Kentucky Derby, and the 1958 Preakness Stakes. After his racing career, he sired several prominent racing horses including Tosmah. Due to his triumphant and well known racing career, he was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.

I have a statue of a wooden horse with Tim Tam written on the base it stands on. Favorite is engraved on the Platform as well. That’s all I know about it. Picked it up in a Thrift store in Alabama.
