"Buckpasser" 1966 Arlington Classic "World Record" Silver Trophy

"Buckpasser" 1966 Arlington Classic "World Record" Silver Trophy

Renowned horse painter Richard Stone Reeves called racehorse Buckpasser "the most perfectly proportioned Thoroughbred I have ever seen." The horse won nine of his 11 race starts for international record winnings for a two-year-old of $586,090 in 1965, then continued his run of success in 1966, winning 15 consecutive more races, including the Arlington Stakes. Here's the trophy from that event, standing roughly 8" tall on its wooden base, which reads: "WON BY BUCKPASSER OWNER - OGDEN PHIPPS TRAINER E.A. NELOY JOCKEY BRAULIO BAEZA DISTANCE - ONE MILE TIME - 1:59 5/8." Buckpasser also won the American Derby (breaking the track record), the Chicago Stakes, the Brooklyn Derby, the Woodward Stakes, the Travers Stakes, the Malibu Stakes, the Brooklyn Handicap, the Lawrence Realization Stakes and the two-mile-long Jockey Club Gold Cup that year, becoming the first horse to earn more than $1 million before the age of four. He was named the 1966 American Horse of the Year.
