Introducing the new Meadow Stable Commemorative Racing Crop Shadowbox paying tribute to the remarkable riding performance of Hall of Fame jockey Ron Turcotte aboard Secretariat in the 1973 Triple Crown. The bond of trust between horse and jockey is an essential ingredient for success in any racing competition. Turcotte's confident, yet intuitive handling of Secretariat in the Triple Crown races, each in distinctively different manner, yet all resulting in track record-breaking victories, remains the standard for excellence within the sport.
The Meadow Stable Commemorative Racing Crop is hand-crafted in Kentucky using the finest materials in the trade with a variety of custom flourishes representing the colors of Penny Chenery's famous breeding operation and racing stable. From the wrapped and padded grip to the pin-striped fiberglass shaft to the royal blue tip with contrasting white nylon stitching, each commemorative crop is as functional as it is decorative. Accompanying the crop is our signed panoramic Belmont Color Stretch Photo capturing Secretariat's 31-length win to sweep the Triple Crown. The attractive ready-to-hang Shadowbox display is comprised of thick classic black hardwood framing with double matting, accentuated by a solid brass halter tag nameplate. A wonderful piece for any sports memorabilia collector or racing fan.
Also available with the option to purchase crop alone, with or without Ron Turcotte signature. Crop alone measures 27" long, Shadowbox measures 35" x 15" and comes with numbered certificate of authenticity.
