#1478 Zenyatta
Racehorse Royalty

Funny, flirtatious and fan-friendly describes the mighty 17-hand Zenyatta, who re-wrote racing history in 2009 by beating an all-male field to become the first mare ever to win the Breeders' Cup Classic. Indomitable on the track, this "super filly" has won all 17 of the 17 races she has run so far, outperforming former consecutive win record holders Cigar and Citation. 

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Zenyatta models go to three great charities: the fantastic Thoroughbred rescue/retirement home Old Friends, The Race for Education - providing educational programs and college scholarships to young people in the equine and agriculture industry with significant financial need, and Canter California's Thoroughbred adoption program. You can visit Old Friends at

#1429  Rachel Alexandra - Thoroughbred

2009 Eclipse Award Winner--Three-Year-Old Horse of the Year! First filly to win Preakness in 85 years. Set track records with 20 1/4 length win in Kentucky Oaks, 19 1/4 lengths in Mother Goose!

This elegant bay filly has the speed and stamina to beat America’s fastest colts -- and set a few records of her own. She has even posed for Vogue magazine, and has a line of vintage wines named after her! A daughter of Medaglia d’Oro from the Forty Niner granddaughter Lotta Kim, Rachel Alexandra was originally owned by breeder Dolphus Morrison (who named the filly after his granddaughter) and his partner Michael Lauffer. At first, Morrison planned to sell the filly; but her speed prompted him to race her. At age 3, Rachel Alexandra started setting the track afire. First in the Martha Washington Stakes (where she set a new stakes record), first in the Fair Grounds Oaks and first in the Fantasy Stakes, she then made headlines with a 20 ¼-length victory in the Kentucky Oaks, the Kentucky Derby for fillies. It was the largest winning margin in that race’s 135-year history, and inspired the owner of Curlin, Stonestreet Stables’ Jess Jackson to buy the filly with Harold McCormick and move her from trainer Hal Wiggins to Steve Asmussen. In a bold move, the filly’s new owners entered her in the second leg of racing’s Triple Crown -- the Preakness Stakes -- where she would face colts for the first time. Calvin Borel, Rachel Alexandra’s jockey in the Oaks, had piloted Kentucky Derby winner Mine that Bird, and was expected to ride him in the Preakness. But so solid was his faith in Rachel Alexandra that he opted to ride her in this race. "This is the greatest horse I've ever been on in my life,” he said. Borel did not regret it. Though she drew the unlucky #13 post position, Rachel Alexandra defeated Mine That Bird, becoming the first filly in 85 years to win the Preakness and the first Kentucky Oaks winner ever to do so. It was just the beginning of a sizzling summer for Rachel Alexandra. In New York, she sailed home in the Mother Goose Stakes by 19 ¼ lengths and set a new track record that just missed Secretariat’s 1973 record. (With this win, she also broke the record for margin of victory set by another legendary filly, the late, great Ruffian.) “Rachel” followed that with a romp in the mud in New Jersey’s Haskell Invitational Stakes, defeating a field of colts that included Belmont Stakes winner Summer Bird. Despite the sloppy track, her winning time was just 0.21 seconds off the stakes record. Rachel’s 2009 campaign concluded in September in spectacular fashion when she held off late-surging colts at Saratoga to become the first filly ever to win the prestigious Woodward Stakes, holding off Macho Again by a head. She ran an electrifying race against the older boys for her ninth consecutive victory and all but clinched Horse of the Year honors. By then Rachel Alexandra had won 11 of her 14 races and earned nearly $ 3-million as she looked forward to the 2010 campaign.

#1345  Secretariat

Ask anyone to name the world’s most famous horse and the answer will most likely be Secretariat. His true story is still the stuff of legend. 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 Turcotte and the Chenery family who owned him. Even today, “Big Red’s” star power still shines bright!

#586  Smarty Jones

In the spring of 2004, among the million-dollar equine superstars of racing was a small chestnut colt named Smarty Jones. Undefeated in his first eight races, Smarty staked his claim as one of the greatest racehorses of our time by winning the 2004 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.

 

Foaled on February 28, 2001, Smarty shares his birthday with owner Patricia Chapman’s mother, Mildred McNair, nicknamed “Smarty Jones” by her grandparents. Eventually Smarty was sent to train with John Servis at Philadelphia Park, where he won his maiden race as a two-year-old, and continued his unbeaten streak into his three-year old season, racking up six consecutive victories before traveling to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby.

 

On May 1, 2004, Smarty Jones won the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Lexington, beating 18 of the best Thoroughbreds in the world. In 130 runnings, he is only the fifth unbeaten winner of the “Run for the Roses.” Only two weeks later, Smarty won the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico by a decisive 11 ½ lengths, the largest margin in Preakness history. Pressed by challenger after challenger in the Belmont, the brave little colt refused to relinquish his early lead and was overtaken in the last few furlongs of the race, ending his gallant effort to capture the Triple Crown. With his Derby win and Oaklawn Park Centennial Bonus, Smarty Jones earned the largest payoff ever for winning a race and vaulted to fourth on the all-time earners list. He captured the hearts of racing fans everywhere, with record crowds in attendance at Pimlico and Belmont to cheer him on.

#1307 Barbaro

Barbaro has been called the horse that captured America’s heart and with good reason. From the moment he first stepped onto a racetrack, Barbaro was magnificent. He romped to victory in the 2006 Kentucky Derby after winning all six of his previous races.

Hopes of Barbaro becoming the first Triple Crown winner in nearly 30 years were crushed when he was injured at the start of the Preakness. A huge outpouring of public supported followed as the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s famed New Bolton Center tried to save his life.

Breyer Animal Creations, makers of the world’s finest model horses, stepped in to help by creating a Barbaro portrait model horse and donating a portion of the proceeds to New Bolton.

Despite Barbaro’s will to survive and the valiant efforts made at the New Bolton Center, he did not prevail. When the end came on Jan. 29, 2007, it was a merciful one.

“I thought Barbaro was special from the start, but it wasn’t until he was injured that I realized what an amazing horse he really was and how fortunate he was to have the team at the New Bolton Center to care for him.” said Anthony Fleischmann, President of Reeves International, Inc. Breyer’s parent company. “After the Preakness, we were inundated with mail asking us to make a model of Barbaro and I realized Breyer could both honor a great champion and do some good on behalf of Barbaro for all the thousands of horses who rely on New Bolton when they are hurt. We were honored when his owners Roy and Gretchen Jackson agreed.”

#1273 Forego w/blanket

In an era when many race horses are retired to stud after their three-year-old year, Forego stands out as a giant for his ability to win graded stakes races while almost always carrying the heaviest weight in the field. Though he started his career in 1973 (Secretariat's year), he did not peak until he turned four. He raced frequently from ages 4-7, and earned the Eclipse Awards for Horse of the Year for three consecutive years as well as the Eclipse awards for Champion Older Male for four consecutive years. In all, this indomitable horse won 34 times out of 57 starts.
