Former University of Kentucky and NFL quarterback Tim Couch started signing special Maker's Mark bottles for Big Blue Fans early Friday morning.
Fans spent hours in line waiting at Keeneland for Couch's signature.
Couch arrived just before 6:30 a.m.
Keeneland and Maker's Mark have teamed up for the 16th edition charitable bottle series.
This year's bottle benefits The Gill Heart Institute at UK Health Care.
"My father passed away from heart disease, so it's something that's very special to me, to go out an raise money for this bottle. And I'm so thankful for all of these fans showing up and supporting the cause.," Couch says.
