Ask anyone to name the world’s most famous horse and the answer will most likely be Secretariat. His astonishing 31-length victory in the Belmont stakes, accomplished after winning the first two racing jewels in the triple crown, has yet to be repeated. In the Kentucky Derby, Secretariat set a speed record of 1: 59 2/5, and he captured the Preakness stake with ease. Secretariat was the son of bold ruler out of something royal. Known as “big red”, the large, beautifully conformed Chestnut ran in the blue and white checkered colors of meadow stables. He made it on two “athletes of the century” Lists for his accomplishments and brought fame to those who surrounded him including trainer Lucien Lauren; Jockey Ron trotted and the cheery family who owned him. Even today, “big Red’s” Star power still shines bright! Model measures 13″L x 9. 5″H. from the Manufacturer: Breyer is the maker of the world’s finest model horses!
