LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Is it too early to start talking about next year's Kentucky Derby?

In Louisville, never.

Churchill Downs released the logo for Derby 146 on Thursday. 

The logo, created by SME Branding, features the iconic bugle that calls the horses to the post.

You'll see the new design on all of the official merchandise for Derby next year, including shirts, glasses and jewelry.

Next year's Run for the Roses is set for May 2.
