"War Admiral" 1936 Triple Crown Programs (3)
A complete set of programs from his legendary Triple Crown races, this features the legendary War Admiral. They are all here: Belmont has name on cover and pencil marks inside, otherwise beautiful EX-MT to NM; Kentucky Derby VG; Preakness has a couple of notches at top spine and pencil marked inside, otherwise EX-MT. This set of programs programs is extremely difficult to complete as the Preakness and Belmont are extremely elusive. Those two are the first we have seen, as well as other collectors we spoke to who have been doing this for years. Of course, Triple Crown programs are the class of the field and coveted by advanced collectors, and The Admiral is no exception. Famous equine artist, Richard Reeves, got hooked on horse racing and eventually painting the sport after witnessing War Admiral win the Belmont Stakes.
