Elton Games PLC
About the Manufacturer
For over 40 years, Elton has manufactured the original Kentucky Derby competitive group game, which has won awards and licenses worldwide.
The first and original Kentucky Derby game was introduced in the 1940's by an American Jockey, G V Tonner and was sited on Blackpool foreshore for a number of years. Arthur E Helm, whose father also operated one of the first genuine Kentucky Derby's on Southport Pleasureland, established the original company, Elton Fabrications in 1962. His intention was to redesign for home manufacture and eventual sale, his own English Derby.
By 1972, the first 'Elton' Kentucky Derby was sold to a park in New Brighton, Liverpool. Since then, more than 300 Elton games have been sold to over 45 countries and 90% of the early games are still in operation today.
