The famous blue and white checkered Meadow Stable colors is considered a legendary symbol in the sport of Thoroughbred racing. For the first time ever, is proud to offer for auction a representative of these iconic colors from the Secretariat Meadow Stable archives. This framed shadowbox display contains a set of mini-silks produced by the very same company who produced the Meadow Stable's racing silks in Kentucky for Penny Chenery. Identical in every way to the actual track-worn silks of her runners, this particular set was produced for sentimental display purposes only and is currently being auctioned to assist Ms. Chenery's Secretariat Foundation in gaining recognition for racing-related causes benefiting equine welfare in the areas of research, rehabilitation, and retirement.

Measuring approximately 14" tall, this charming set of miniature silks, with its exact scale pattern of nylon checkerboard blocks on the torso and alternating stripes on the sleeves, contains all the identical features of the lifesize track-worn silks including mother of pearl grommets and shoulder epaulet shoulder for race entry number. The collar label displays the Secretariat Meadow Stable logo and the date of March 30, 1970, the cherished birthday of its most famous runner. As an added bonus, the silks are hand-signed on the left chest by Big Red's Hall of Fame jockey Ron Turcotte and mounted within an elegant cherry wood black linen-backed display measuring 18" x 18" in total.

Penny Chenery was very protective and proprietary concerning the stable's silks. She considered them to be a family "coat of arms" of sorts, and they were never made available to the public. An original verified set of track-worn Meadow Stable silks, if ever offered for sale of auction, would likely command a fortune on the racing memorabilia market. Don't miss this rare opportunity to bid on this unique and treasured heirloom!

Auction ends tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST
