LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)-  Derby fans were able to get up close and personal with some Derby greats Sunday morning.

At the Derby Museum, the 2009 Kentucky Derby winning Trainer Chip Woolley, Secretariat's Owner Penny Chenery, Triple Crown winning Jockey Ron Turcotte and exercise Rider Charlie Davis were on hand to sign autographs and take pictures.

Woolley says events like this are very important, because the Derby would not exist without the fans.
Each autograph did cost a fee, but the money goes to a good cause.

The money that the Secretariat team makes will go to the Secretariat Foundation and Permanently Disabled Jockey's Fund.

Partial proceeds from Chip Woolley's autographs will benefit the Second Stride and Anna House in Belmont charities.
