Due to gale force winds Saturday, we were not able to display the maquette in the park during Dan Patch Days.
To make sure everyone gets a chance to see it, it will be on display in the Heritage Room at the Savage Public Library through the second week of July. The heritage Room is also the home of the Dan Patch Museum.

The Dan Patch Project is the proud recipient of a $5000 grant from the Minnesota Horse Council.
The Minnesota Horse Council uses revenue from the Minnesota Horse Expo to provide “seed money” for new projects or capital improvements by horse groups in Minnesota.
The Dan Patch Project is a grassroots effort to fund raise for and install a bronze sculpture by renowned equine sculptor, Alexa King, of the legendary horse, Dan Patch, at the site of his world record one mile pace; the Minnesota State Fairgrounds.
A second bronze, paying tribute to Dan Patch and his owner, M.W. Savage, will be installed in front of the Savage Public Library in Savage, Minn.
The projects have been approved by both the Minnesota State Fair and city of Savage.
