Jacinto Vasquez "Ruffian" Signed Race Used Whip

Jacinto Vasquez "Ruffian" Signed Race Used Whip

During his career Jacinto Vasquez was the only jockey to defeat Secretariat three times: in the Wood Memorial with Angle Light, in the Whitney Handicap aboard Onion, and in Secretariat's maiden race aboard Quebec. In 1975, Vasquez was the regular jockey for both Kentucky Derby winner Foolish Pleasure and Triple Tiara winner Ruffian. When "The Great match race" on July 6, 1975, between the two horses was arranged, Vasquez chose to ride Ruffian. Used while riding Ruffian, this riding crop shows nice use, is hand labeled "JV" on knob and is signed and inscribed "Ruffian" by Jacinto Vasquez in silver.
