Lawn jockeys may have also played a role in the history of the Underground Railroad. During the Civil War, oral traditions held that lawn jockeys holding lit lanterns or colored flags in their hands indicated a possible safe house for escaping slaves. The home of U.S. District Judge Benjamin Piatt was just such a home, with his wife using the family's lawn jockey for that very purpose. At the first Kentucky Derby in 1875, 13 of the 15 riders were African Americans, and blacks rode the winners of 15 of the first 28 Derby races.
