Infographic by Kentucky for Kentucky and Rachael Sinclair

In Hunter S. Thompson’s 1970 article, “The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved,” Thompson described the people and events surrounding the Kentucky Derby in a frenzied first-person account unlike traditional news reports.

In honor of tomorrow’s Kentucky Derby, Kentucky for Kentucky teamed up with artist Rachael Sinclair to create an infographic, with each jockey vest symbolizing descriptions out of Thompson’s famed article—Colonel Quick, Nekkid Horses, Whiskey Gentry, Dust Commander, Old Fitz, Chemical Billy and Inbred Horses—to name a few.

Prints of the infographic are available this week only for $30.
