Affirmed Christmas Ornament
Foaled in 1975, the chestnut stallion Affirmed quickly rose through the ranks of thoroughbred racing. He gained the reputation for starting like an explosion and continuing to power along straight to the finish line. Affirmed became only the 11th horse to win the Triple Crown as the 1978 winner of all three prestigious races. Racing fans had an exciting time with Affirmed and his arch-rival Alydar racing head-to-head in many races, with Affirmed winning 7 of the 10 times they met, but often by less than a length. His trainer, Laz Barrera, once said: "Affirmed is greater than Secretariat, or any Triple Crown winner, because only Affirmed had to face Alydar." That's high praise, indeed. At stud, he went on to sire over 80 Stakes winners.
Breyer honored Affirmed with a Christmas ornament as part of their Winners of the Triple Crown Ornament Series in 2006. He wears his saddle blanket color from the Kentucky Derby.
This one is Factory Mint in his original box.
