LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The man whose duck rode across the finish line first in the Kenducky Derby picked up his winning ride on Thursday.

Stephen Kelley is the proud new owner of a Honda Fit.

The Kenducky Derby benefits Harbor House, a training and development center for adults with physical disabilities.

Kelley has an uncle who is a quadriplegic and said he understands the Harbor House's mission.

“It hits close to home seeing him and the way that he is. People help people and it really is great,” he said.

Kelley adopted six of the nearly 20,000 rubber ducks that raced down the Ohio River in September.
