Signed & Numbered
Edition Size - 1200
"With no Triple Crown winner, the racing industry needed something to awaken a sleeping media. That something came in June, with the running of the 2007 Belmont Stakes."
"A small crowd of only 46,870 people had come to Belmont Park to see what they thought would be an uneventful third leg of the Triple Crown. To their surprise, they would see one of the most exciting finishes in Belmont history. They would see an amazing horse, Rags to Riches, become the first filly in 102 years to win the Belmont Stakes."
"On her way to achieving this feat, she had to overcome a number of obstacles: a near disastrous stumble out of the starting gate, running most of the mile and a half on the far outside, then finally battling Curlin, the big chestnut colt, eye to eye, right down to the wire."
"The story of this wonderful filly is best told in a quote by Steve Haskins in an article for The Blood-Horse magazine. „There is a saying attributed to both Eleanor Roosevelt and Carl Sandberg. ŒA Woman is like a tea bag. It‚s only when she's in hot water that you realize how strong she is." – Fred Stone
