Seattle Slew Christmas Ornament
The handsome and talented Seattle Slew was born in 1974 to a young stallion and maiden mare. As such, there wasn't much fanfare at his birth, but when he began racing, he got everyone's attention. He raced three times as a two-year-old, going undefeated and winning the Eclipse Award as best two-year-old in America. In his three-year-old year, Slew went into the Triple Crown races undefeated, and left as a Triple Crown winner - still undefeated! He was named the Eclipse Award winner for best three-year-old as well as Horse of the Year. As a four-year-old, he faced two potentially career-ending injuries, but came back from both, defeating the highest-caliber horses and winning his third Eclipse Award! After that resounding success, he was retired to stud, where he produced well over 100 stakes winners, insuring his legacy will live on forever.
Seattle Slew was honored with a Christmas ornament for the holiday season in 2005, becoming the 5th in Breyer's Triple Crown Winner's Series of ornaments. It depicts Slew and his jockey crossing the finish line, with his jockey making an excited gesture of triumph. These ornaments are highly sought-after by collectors and racing fans today.
This one is Factory Mint in his original box.
