Race Horse

(c) www.horsies.net   (c) Elizabeth Emswiler

The Race Horse was introduced in 1954 with no mold stamp, but in 1997 a round " Breyer Reeves." stamp was added. The mold has a molded-on halter, is smaller than a typical Traditional scale horse, and has little to no detailing on his face or body. It was sculpted by Chris Hess, apparently based on a wooden sculpture of the racehorse "Whirlaway" for Grand Wood Carving. It is Breyer mold #36.

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.
