Dozens line up for signatures on special edition Maker's Mark bottles featuring American Pharoah

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Dozens of people braved the rain and waited in line for about two hours to have American Pharoah's connections sign the limited-edition Maker's Mark bottles at the Palace Theater on Wednesday. 

Trainer Bob Baffert, owners Ahmed and Justin Zayat and Rob Samuels of Makers Mark autographed each one. 

The special edition bottles feature the blue and yellow colors of the Zayat Stables. 

Debbie Boothe says it was worth the wait. 

"I think it's kind of neat they're signing these," Boothe said. "It's been 37 years since we've had a Triple Crown winner and I think it's neat they came out with something like this."

The bottles went on sale May 1.

A limited number of tickets were available for today's autograph signing, and we're told they sold out in minutes.
