An unusual Sterling Silver mode of a race horse – sculpture by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co ltd of London, England. The race horse is may be a model of Blue Peter – a British Race Horse who had won four consecutive races in 1939 and who’s career was cut short due to the onset of WWII. The sculpture sits upon a beautiful vibrant green onyx base.
In 1939, three-year-old Blue Peter went undefeated in all four of his races. He captured the Blue Riband Trial Stakes, a prep race for the ensuing Triple Crown series. In May, the colt won the 2,000 Guineas and then June’s Epsom Derby, defeating Heliopolis by four lengths. While Blue Peter was clearly the best three-year-old in Britain in 1939. The onset of World War II ended his chance to win the Triple Crown as the St. Leger Stakes was cancelled. Cancelled as well, was a planned match race against the brilliant Frenchcolt Pharis who had won the Prix du Jockey Club and France’s most important race at the time, the Grand Prix de Paris.
