Secretariat

(c) Janice Cox  (c) Janice Cox

The Secretariat mold was introduced in 1987 as part of Breyer's Artist Series with the " Breyer Reeves" linear mold stamp and is a portrait model of famous Thoroughbred race horse Secretariat. On early models Secretariat's face is flat and there is some forelock on the right side of the head as well as the left. Beginning in about 1988-1989 the model was changed so that the frontal plane bulges upward and the right side forelock is missing. The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #435.

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.
