Kentucky Derby horse dung for sale

(SOUNDBITE) (English) COLEMAN LARKIN, ARTIST, SAYING: "Whoa.

It's a horse turd in a jar." Yes...horse poop.

In a jar.

Brought to you by Kentucky artist Coleman Larkin.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) COLEMAN LARKIN, ARTIST, SAYING: "To me, it's a product for champions." This product for champions comes from the champions Kentucky knows best... NATS OF GATE OPENING... ... race horses.

NATS: "Atta boy." including Silver Charm at Old Friends Farm in Georgetown, Kentucky.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MICHAEL BLOWEN, PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER OF OLD FRIENDS THOROUGHBRED RETIREMENT, SAYING: "Of course, he won the Derby and the Preakness in 1997.

Then in 1998, he went to Dubai and he won the Dubai World Cup against the best horses in the world." Michael Blowen says he got a visit from Larkin at his farm for retired thoroughbreds.

Larkin was on a mission for manure.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MICHAEL BLOWEN, PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER OF OLD FRIENDS THOROUGHBRED RETIREMENT, SAYING: "He went out into the paddock.

He scraped up a bunch of poop and he said he will send you a picture when I'm done.

He was very efficient and extremely serious." And now that poop is up for sale.

Preserved and bottled by Larkin.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) COLEMAN LARKIN, ARTIST, SAYING: "They gotta be nice and fresh.

That's important, so they keep their shape.

They have to be dried.

That's very important.

They have to be sealed." And for $200... a naturally pruduced piece of Kentucky horse history can be yours.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) COLEMAN LARKIN, ARTIST, SAYING: "This would look excellent on your mantel.

I think this would look excellent in your office.

I think this would be a great Mother's Day gift, Father's Day gift for people you love or hate." Blowen says he's still not sure why Larkin would do such a thing, but he's not TOO skeptical.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MICHAEL BLOWEN, PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER OF OLD FRIENDS THOROUGHBRED RETIREMENT, SAYING: "I'm not one to reject ideas, especially if someone is very enthusiastic about it.

I know the feeling.

That's how we got this place started." Larkin says some of the proceeds go back to the horses, including farms that are home to retired thorough breds like Silver Charm.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) COLEMAN LARKIN, ARTIST, SAYING: "Silver Charm is a champion, I'm a champion, Kentucky for Kentucky is champions.

I think whoever buys this, has to be a champion." A champion with a prize to keep and cherish, long after its original owner has crossed the finish line.
