1979 Spectacular Bid

No Kentucky Derby winner had a tighter connection to Harford County than Spectacular Bid, who was trained throughout his illustrious career by Harford County native Grover Greer "Bud" Delp, a proud graduate of Bel Air High School. Bud and The Bid are both enshrined in the National Racing Hall of Fame. BALTIMORE SUN ARCHIVES / Homestead Publishing
