Jet Run was a Maryland-bred Thoroughbred who proved successful as a hunter-jumper from a young age.  After making quite an impression at age 6, he was purchased by Mexico and competed there, taking home Individual Gold and Team Silver for that country in the 1975 Pan-American Games before being purchased and brought back to the US to continue his career under rider Michael Matz.  With Matz's guidance, he took the Individual Gold and helped the US Team win Team Gold at the Puerto Rico Pan-American Games in 1979. Among his many other accomplishments, he also won the American Gold Cup twice, making it look effortless, as in the photo below.

Might Tango, ridden by Bruce Davison, was a star eventer, winning Individual Gold in the World Three-Day Eventing championship.  Bruce acquired the 17-hand grey Thoroughbred as a two-year-old ex-racehorse and brought him to the top of the sport.  He was only seven, and Bruce's backup for that event, when his primary horse came up lame, thrusting the still-inexperienced Might Tango into the spotlight.  Their win, against great odds and extreme heat, was compared to "a junior high school quarterback leading USC to victory in the Rose Bowl" by Sports Illustrated.

Keen, a handsome 17.1-hand chestnut gelding, helped the US win Team Bronze in Dressage at the Montreal Olympics, Individual Gold in the Pan-Am Games in Puerto Rico, and then Individual Silver when the Pan-Am Games came to Mexico City, along with the US National Dressage Championship an amazing four times!  he was inducted into the US Dressage Federation hall of Fame in 1997.

Breyer honored this United States Olympic team with portrait models which ran from 1980-1993.

This set was inspected as follows:

Might Tango: Near Mint with only a pinpoint tail tip rub and a few tiny hoof edge rubs, along with slight yellowing.  A couple days of sunbathing will make her even more beautiful.  She features a darker head, shaded just like her hindquarters, which we don't usually see. 

Jet Run:  Near Mint with just a pinpoint rub on his left stifle and one on his right flank.  He features a speckly paint job that could almost qualify him as a young roan! 

Keen:  Near Mint with only pinpoint eartip rubs marking him down, along with slight yellowing.  He features unglossed eyes (all three do, actually) and nostril shading.  The set even comes with their original full-color carry case with its original handle.

The set comes with their original box, which is in excellent condition and still has its plastic carry handle.
