Silky Sullivan

(c) Janice Cox  (c) Janice Cox

The Silky Sullivan mold is a portrait model of the famous Thoroughbred racehorse of the same name, first appearing in Breyer's Race Horse series in 1975 along with Kelso, Man O' War, Swaps, and Terrang. All of these racehorse molds were originally sculpted by Maureen Love for Hagen-Renaker as Silky Sullivan. Some of the earliest Silky Sullivan models have no mold marks, but the rest have the round "Breyer Molding Co." stamp and some may also having the "B" stamp. Silky Sullivan is Breyer mold #603.

A symbol means that I don't yet have a picture of that model. If you can help, please see the Help Wanted section. Clicking on any photo below will open a larger version of that picture.
