LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- One hundred years after winning the Kentucky Derby, a local jockey was honored.

A banner went up in Jeffersontown Tuesday morning to honor jockey Roscoe Goose, who won the Derby in 1913 with Donerail.  He was born in J-town and his ancestors were founders of the city.

His niece Catherine Shea said Tuesday, "It feels great just to see anything that belongs to him in any way.  I loved him very very much and saw him as often as I could."

The city is also honoring Goose's brother, Carl Goose. He was also a jockey and won the Oaks the same year his brother won the Derby.
