By popular demand, Secretariat.com is proud to bring back this unique fine jewelry line, designed and cast from an original authenticated nail from one of the shoes worn by Secretariat in the 1973 Belmont Stakes during his record-breaking 31-length victory to claim the Triple Crown.
Each piece in the Belmont Nail Jewelry collection is hand-crafted in solid sterling silver, cast directly from the original preserved nail - obtained and individually catalogued by Meadow Stable exercise rider Jimmy Gaffney when the champion was re-shod two weeks after the Belmont.
The nail head sports the starburst pattern familiar to farriers and horseman, its shaft bears the distinct marks and wear pattern incurred from Secretariat's legendary run. The slender and glossy polished nails measure just over 1.15" in length and each comes with a certificate card in its own special packaging.
While an original race-worn Belmont nail was recently valued at more than $26,000, our Belmont Nail Jewelry provides racing fans and collectors alike the affordable opportunity to pay tribute to Big Red, combining history and horse fashion. Simple yet elegant, it's the perfect gift for yourself, or any horse enthusiast this racing season. In stock and available for immediate delivery - order yours today!
