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, securing the Triple Crown win for 1973. Secretariat was the son of Bold Ruler out of Somethingroyal. 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!

This portrait of Big Red is on the Smarty Jones mold.  The red chestnut is done with a metallic gold undercoat that make him look alive and ready to sprint down the final stretch!  He was produced by Breyer from 2009-current.

He is Near Mint with just a pinpoint speck on his right fetlock and the slightest yellowing in his socks that you can correct with a day or two of sunbathing.  He features beautiful shading and highlights.
