Skip Away Breeders Cup Classic Set - Race Worn Cloth and Exercise Cloth
“Skippy” was one of the most decorated racers in history, being named Eclipse Champion Three-Year-Old Male in 1996, Champion Older Male in 1997 and 1998, and 1998 Horse of the Year. Winner of 10 Grade 1 events, two of his signature races were a victory over Cigar in the 1996 Jockey Club Gold Cup and a five-length victory in the 1997 Breeders’ Cup Classic. The fourth-leading thoroughbred money earner of all time (as of 02/09/2015), Skip Away won over $9.6 million in his brilliant career. He was elected to the Thoroughbred Hall of Fame in 2004, and Blood-Horse Magazine ranked him the 32nd greatest American thoroughbred of the 20th century. In the 1998 Classic, Skip Away ran on a bowed tendon and finished sixth in this, his last race. Offered here is the regal purple saddle cloth worn by Skip Away during the 1998 Breeders Cup Classic, along with the exercise cloth he wore that week in workouts.
