Every year thousands of Breyer model horses arrive in Lexington, Kentucky, for BreyerFest, hoping to be selected by a new owner. After three days celebrating horses, people depart home with new Breyer models in tow, excited to introduce the newest horses to their existing herd.
This year's contest was judged on creativity and coloring skills. There are three age categories; 10 and under, 11-16, and 17 and up. Winners will receive Breyer's 2017 and 2018 Horses of the Year - Bella and Mason models - as their prize. We had a large number of entrants this year!
The number 13 is anything but unlucky for three-year-old chestnut Thoroughbred stallion Justify who, in June 2018, became only the thirteenth horse in racing history to win the American Triple Crown (only the second since Seattle Slew to win on an undefeated record) and now joins 2015 Triple Crown champion American Pharoah as one of Breyer®'s greatest commemorative racing collectibles of the century.
