Introducing the Champion Mug Series commemorating Thoroughbred racing's iconic heroes. As the inaugural release in the series, we celebrate the legacy of the two most famed chestnut champions in American racing, both nicknamed "Big Red." Secretariat and Man o’ War raced nearly a half century apart but each left a lasting imprint of excellence and starpower on the sport they helped define.
2020 represents the landmark 50th anniversary of Secretariat's birth and also marks the 100th anniversary of Man o' War's 1920 championship 3-year-old racing season. These special edition mugs featuring a striking black matte finish and contrasting interior reminiscent of the colors found in the racing silks of Secretariat's Meadow Stable and Man o' War's owner Samuel D. Riddle, are being offered exclusively through Secretariat.com.
Both of these retro-inspired two-sided 15 oz. mugs feature their respective champion in all their chestnut glory. Secretariat, the charismatic record breaking 1973 Triple Crown "Super Horse" is shown with jockey Ron Turcotte aboard while Man o’ War, affectionately given the moniker of the "Mostest Hoss" by his longtime loyal groom Will Harbut, is depicted with jockey Clarence Kummer up. It is only appropriate that these dual equine legends are represented wearing the saddlecloth numbers of 1 and 1A, a nod to their nearly universal recognition as the two greatest horses of the 20th century and entry mates for the ages! Start your Champions collection with style, and reserve yours now!
