Real Life Breyer Horses: Nyquist Wins The Kentucky Derby!

May 9, 2016

The first Saturday in May has come and gone and with it a new champion has been crowned. The illustrious Kentucky Derby has once again excited the masses with the most exciting two minutes in sports, and of course, the winner already has everyone’s hearts hoping for history to be made one again.

The 142nd Kentucky Derby truly brought horses from near and far to compete in one of the most prestigious races in the world. The three year olds that came to Churchill Downs to try their luck at the Kentucky Derby hailed from as far as Japan and had raced all over the world before coming to Kentucky.

With clear skies and good track conditions the race began with a strong showing from the entire field. As the final stretch came into view the favorite, Nyquist, came out from the pack and pulled ahead to win.

With the Preakness already in their sights, Nyquist and his owner, trainer and jockey are hopeful that he will go on to make history just like American Pharoah, by winning the Triple Crown. Horse racing fans are excited too, and hopeful that history can be made two years in a row.

Golden Oak Stables congratulates Nyquist on his incredible win! Stay tuned to Stable News for his journey towards the Triple Crown!

Real Life Breyer Horses: Kentucky Derby 142

May 5, 2016

The first Saturday in May is upon us and with that wonderful day comes the annual running of the Kentucky Derby. Churchill Downs in Louisville Kentucky plays host to one of the most famous races in the world. Horse lovers from all over the world are en route to Kentucky for this momentous day where history will once again be made.

Many racing fans are still riding the excitement of last year’s amazing Triple Crown win by the amazing American Pharaoh, but this year’s field is getting people just as excited for the possibilities! Nyquest is the early favorite and has created a lot of buzz around him already. With 3-1 odds, he is by far the favorite and breaks from the lucky number 13 slot. Exaggerator, Mohayman and Brody’s Cause are all close behind him as they surely will be come Saturday.

Another exciting development is the four grey horses in the field. Grey horses are fairly common in horse racing, but four of them in the Kentucky Derby isn’t something you see every day. Bays and chestnuts normally make up the Kentucky Derby field, so there’s no question that many eyes will be on the grey horses that are racing for the roses.

Who’s your favorite to win? We’ll all be watching with baited breath, but if there’s anything that we’ve learned from horse racing history, it’s anyone’s race and Golden Oak Stables will keep you in the know!

Real Life Breyer Horses: American Pharoah’s Grand Slam

November 2, 2015

Fans from around the world tuned in and stood in anticipation as the champion, American Pharoah raced in his last race for a chance to make racing history! This amazing race horse has already captured the world’s attention, but he had the task of capturing the Grand Slam of Horse Racing.

After a 37 year dry spell, American Pharoah stunned the nation by winning the Triple Crown of horse racing with wins in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes. These three races are often thought of as three of the most difficult races, or at least the three most difficult tests for a three year old race horse. American Pharoah won each of them in grand style and proved his talent with each race.

Racing fans have been anxiously awaiting the finale to his incredible career, the Breeders Cup Classic. This race caps off the end of the year and is arguably the most challenging race of the year. Bringing together the best horses of all ages, this race is the final race of the Breeders Cup and makes champions each year.

In a field that all had impressive wins, this would easily be American Pharoah’s most challenging race. With good track conditions and a huge crowd of fans, American Pharoah ran strong and came over the finish line with an impressive lead ahead of the pack. With that performance, American Pharoah has cemented himself into the history books as one of the most impressive race horses in history!

You can bring home your own American Pharoah from Golden Oak Stables in Traditional or Stablemate scale, or an ornament to deck your tree with! Whichever you choose, one or all, every collector needs a little bit of this piece of horse racing history in their collection!

Real Life Breyer Horses: The Breeders Cup Classic 2015

October 29, 2015

This Saturday, the most talented race horses in the sport will gather at Keeneland Race Track in Lexington Kentucky to face off in the prestigious Breeders Cup. These races often put their winners into the history books and one race in particular this year, will make history for the winner. The Breeders Cup Classic, arguably the most prestigious of all of the Breeders Cup races, hosts a field of horses that are set to make history!

2015 has already been one for the history books, with the first Triple Crown winner in almost forty years being crowned. American Pharoah reinvigorated the horse racing world with his amazing accomplishment and made the world take notice of not only him, but horse racing again! With the world watching, American Pharoah comes to the Breeders Cup to enter in the Classic and hope to make history as the first horse to ever win both the Triple Crown and the Breeders Cup Classic.

This Grand Slam of Horse Racing would be an incredible feat to say the least, but many talented horses are stepping into the starting gates in hopes to make their own history, as the horse that beat the history maker. Beholder is a strong competitor that is set to give American Pharoah a run for his money. Honor Code and Keen Ice are close behind in the odds and hoping for a strong race themselves. Truth be told, the entire field is strong, and the winner of this race will truly prove their strength against some of the most talented horses in the world!

Golden Oak Stables wishes American Pharoah and the entire field good luck on Saturday. Who will win? We’ll all just need to wait and see!

Breyer Horse New Releases: American Pharoah Ornament

October 26, 2015

American Pharoah has created quite the legacy in his short year racing, including the most prestigious racing achievement, the Triple Crown. This weekend he tries for a feat no horse has ever accomplished, the Grand Slam of Horse Racing. Golden Oak Stables and Breyer bring you a new series of horses memorializing this historic event and this incredible horse, including one that is perfect for the holiday season!

American Pharoah as captured the world with his amazing Triple Crown win, the first one in 37 years! No horse has managed to win the three leg trek to the Triple Crown since the late 1970’s. Many thought it impossible to ever happen again, but American Pharoah proved that theory wrong with his incredible wins!

This weekend, The Breeders Cup comes to the historic Keeneland race track and American Pharoah saddles up for what will be the last race in an exciting year, the Breeders Cup Classic. A win in the Classic would put him down in the history books as the only horse to not only win the Triple Crown, but also the Classic, thought among many to be the most difficult race in the world.

You can cheer on American Pharoah and memorialize this amazing time in horse racing with an ornament for your holidays that will help you remember this momentous occasion for years to come. The American Pharoah ornament shows this beloved bay in a full gallop and his jockey, Victor Espinoza in full excitement as he crosses the finish line!

History may get made this weekend, but as far as anyone is concerned, American Pharoah has already made a pretty amazing legacy for himself.

Real Life Breyer Horses: American Pharoah Makes History!

June 8, 2015

Racing fans all over the world have been anxiously anticipating the coming of the next Triple Crown winner. Not since Affirmed in 1978 has a horse been able to win the three biggest races for a three year old, The Kentucky Derby, The Preakness and The Belmont Stakes. Many said it couldn’t be done again, that horses just weren’t bred to run like that anymore. Saturday, a brown colt proved them wrong.

American Pharoah may only be a three year old, but in his short career he has created more of a stir than anyone could have imagined. This unassuming bay colt was bred in Kentucky, his sire Pioneer Of The Nile came a close second in the Kentucky Derby, and his dam even more unassuming.

People started to notice him with his impressive wins in G1 stakes throughout the country, and when time came for the Kentucky Derby, it was clear that he was one to watch. By the time he crossed the finish line, there was no stopping Pharoah. From there fans watched as he demolished the field in The Preakness, running through a sloppy track to cross the finish line first. It was clear, this horse was something special.

Saturday’s Belmont Stakes brought anticipation from all over the world, as millions tuned in to see if the 37 year streak would be ended. In a short mile and a half American Pharoah showed the world that he was something special, there was no stopping him, and with a 5 1/2 length lead he bolted across the finish line to make his way into the history books!

American Pharoah is headed to the Breeders Cup Classic to attempt a final Grand Slam in horse racing and will retire to stud after.

Golden Oak Stables congratulates American Pharoah on his amazing win!

Real Life Breyer Horses: Race For The Triple Crown

June 4, 2015

In just two days eyes from all over the world will descend on Belmont Park to hope to see history be made. This will mark the seventh time in 15 years that a horse has come this far in their Triple Crown journey, but none have managed to conquer the Belmont. Will American Pharoah make history?

Saturday, June 6th marks the 147th running of the Belmont Stakes. This prestigious race has become the cherry topping on the three year old horse racing world being the last leg in the race for the Triple Crown. Millions will tune in and thousands have made their way to New York to hope for a chance to witness horse racing history be made when the favorite, American Pharoah, goes up against a field of 8. Each of the horses is arguably as talented as the last and there’s no telling who might pull out the win.

The Belmont has always been a tough race with a long 12 furlong, or 1.5 mile, length. Only horses with exceptional stamina can compete in a race of this length and it has proven to be a hurdle for so many. Not since Affirmed in 1978 has a horse proven itself across the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont!

American Pharoah is an easy favorite, with his Kentucky Derby win fresh in so many memories and his win at the Preakness on a sloppy track in the rain, his fans are sure that he can go the distance and make history once again!

Will you be watching? Golden Oak Stables will be!
