LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The 2014 Pegasus Pin has been released, but at the current time there is only one place you can get them. The release of the pin, which has the image of the Louisville skyline, comes two weeks earlier than last year.

Until March 2, the pins will be sold exclusively at Hard Rock Cafe at Fourth Street Live. After that it will be sold at partnering locations.

Aimee Boyd with the Kentucky Derby Festival said this year the prizes will be done differently.

"This year what's new is any Pegasus Pin can win you a grand prize," Boyd said. "So we still have the gold pins and those will get you the gold grand prize but we will have eight grand prizes that will be drawn for eight weeks.

Any pin can register you for one of the prizes, like shopping sprees, Kroger gift cards, free gasoline and a brand new Honda CRV to name a few

"Instead of holding them just to the end of the Kentucky Derby Festival we're going to give them out leading up to the festival and throughout the festival so you want to get your pins now and register online," Boyd said.

The drawings will start March 14.

It's not just the Pegasus Pins that are starting early this Derby season. The KDF events will kick off earlier than usual starting with the 25th annual Thunder over Louisville on Saturday, April 12.
