FUSAICHI PEGASUS - Kentucky Derby Winner Stallion Horseshoe on Cherry Plaque
- Source: eBay
Up for bid is the stallion horseshoe worn by Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus while standing at Ashford Stud in Versailles, Kentucky.A son of Mr. Prospector, Fusaichi Pegasus was considered a future superstar the day he was foaled. It was to no one's surprise when he lit up the auction board, selling for $4,000,000 as a yearling, which proved to be a major bargain for his owner. Fusaichi Pegasus' destiny for greatness came to fruition when he captured the 2000 Kentucky Derby under the twin spires of Churchill Downs. He retired having won the KY Derby, Wood Memorial Stakes, San Felipe Stakes, Jerome Handicap and earnings of nearly $2,000,000. Upon his retirement, the Kentucky Derby winner with regal bloodlines and stunning conformation sold for a reported $60 million to Coolmore as a stallion prospect - a record at the time. This horseshoe (custom molded to provide relief to his aging foot) rests on a solid cherry plaque with a custom designed plate featuring his career highlights and statistics. The horseshoe was acquired from the Ashford Stud's farrier and given to a Keeneland track veterinarian who has provided a letter of authenticity. Winning bidder agrees to add $15.00 shipping via Priority mail which will include insurance for the full selling price.
