Breyer American Pharoah

AMERICAN PHAROAH: 2015 TRIPLE CROWN WINNER


For 37 years, since Secretariat won it in 1973, Thoroughbred fans around the world have been waiting for the next great horse to win racing’s Triple Crown: the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes. In 2015, a stallion named American Pharoah delivered.

Owned by Zayat Stables and trained by the legendary Bob Baffert, American Pharoah and jockey Victor Espinoza fought hard for their win in the Kentucky Derby. Two weeks later in a downpour on a sloppy track, they again persevered and won the Preakness Stakes by seven lengths.

Three weeks later, American Pharoah was ready to run in the Belmont Stakes with Espinoza again in the saddle. The longest of the Triple Crown races at 1.5 miles long, the previous 37 years had seen 13 Triple Crown hopefuls fall short. Ignoring history, American Pharoah ran a seemingly effortless race, leading from the beginning and winning by 5.5 lengths. A champion of champions, American Pharoah made his own history to become the nation’s 12th Triple Crown winner!

Breyer WAR HORSE “JOEY”

Limited Edition 3,500 Pieces – Traditional Scale

Michael Morpurgo’s War House is now a Breyer “Classics Model”. War House is the internationally acclaimed Children’s Book that tells the story of World War I as seen through the eyes of a horse named Joey, and Albert, the boy who loves him. From book to stage to film, and now honored as a Breyer “Classic” Model, what makes War House unforgettable is the utter humanity that a horse, Joey, rekindles in the hearts of the war torn people he meets along his incredible journey.

Breyer SECRETARIAT

Breyer Traditional Mold

Ask anyone to name the world’s most famous horse and the answer will most likely be Secretariat. His true story is still the stuff of legend. In 1973 his astonishing 31-length victory in the Belmont Stakes, accomplished after winning the first two racing jewels in the Triple Crown, has yet to be repeated. In the Kentucky Derby, Secretariat set a speed record of 1:59 2/5, and he captured the Preakness Stake with ease.

Secretariat was the son of Bold Ruler out of Somethingroyal. Known as “Big Red”, the large, beautifully conformed chestnut ran in the blue and white checkered colors of Meadow Stables. He made it on two “Athletes of the Century” lists for his accomplishments and brought fame to those who surrounded him including trainer Lucien Lauren, jockey Ron Turcotte, and the Chenery family who owned him. Even today, “Big Red’s” star power still shines bright!

How Breyer Model Horses Are Made

Breyer model horses are perfect for horse lovers and collectors of all ages. They are the product of Reeves International, who has produced them since the early 1950s. Although the models are marketed as toys, they are also cherished by adult hobbyists who collect and trade them. Breyer Horses are among one of the most enduring toy collectibles to emerge from the 1950s. They were instantly popular then and remain so today.

Breyer model horses are produced in four sizes from the traditional 1/9 scale Traditional Series to the smallest size Stablemate Series at 1/32 scale. They are beautifully detailed and handcrafted and produced using a very intricate process. According to Reeves International: “Approximately 20 different artisans handle each individual Breyer® model from start to finish – a process, which, 54 years later, is still done by human hands, not machines. Even today, no two Breyer® model horses are ever exactly alike!”

First an original model is created by an artist who sculpts it from clay. The clay model is used to make a steel mold and melted cellulose acetate is injected into the molds. The models are then cooled before they are assembled and finished.

The finished models are painted with airbrushes, but the smallest details are hand-painted. The hand-painted details are never exactly the same from horse to horse, meaning each Breyer horse is truly a one-of-a-kind. One mold is used to produce horses that will be painted several different color variations. There may be a bay, a pinto, an appaloosa and more, all with the same body shape. The model number of the Breyer Horse is based on their color, not their body shape.

Collecting models created by specific artists is one way to narrow your collection. To collect every Breyer model in every color scheme would take quite a warehouse to hold! Breyer horses are extremely affordable, so getting started in collecting them is not only easy but affordable. Small Breyer Stablemate models cost about $5, with used ones on eBay going for less than $5.
