LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Woodford Reserve's master distiller Chris Morris joined Kelsey Starks and Andy Treinen on the Backside at Churchill Downs Monday to talk about what's new with the $1,000 Mint Julep for Derby 140.

Woodford Reserve is the Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby and has raised almost $400,000 in charitable funds since the $1,000 Mint Julep Cup program began nine years ago. This year’s cups commemorate the 89th anniversary of the Kentucky Derby’s designation as the “Run for the RosesTM.” Proceeds benefit Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Center.
