This handsome plaque has that early 1960s Danish Modern vintage appeal, beautifully constructed, with a brass plate incised, "Winner 1962 Kentucky Derby Decidedly Distance 1 1/4 Miles New Track Record 2 2/3." Made by Thoroughbred, the horseshoe shows use and was worn by Decidedly in the 1962 Derby, and is attached to the plaque. Decidedly was the fifth-fastest winner in the history of the Derby. He was sired by Determine who also won in 1954. This was a very important horse, and only a few horses ran the Kentucky Derby faster. Measures 11.5x8x.75", condition is beautiful NM as is the presentation. Incredible find was one of two discovered at a recent estate in Woodstock, Georgia.
