1955 Willie Shoemaker Pendant Gifted to Family Member for Winning First Kentucky Derby. Willie Shoemaker set the standard for excellence in the horse racing field. For nearly three decades, he held the world record for most professional victories by a jockey. Shoemaker's racing resume is too extensive to list. If there was a race to be won, Shoemaker usually came out on top. Like the man himself, this pendant is short in size (1.75") but packs a powerful punch. This very pendant is modeled after the actual trophy presented for winning the Kentucky Derby. "Kentucky Derby 1955" is engraved onto the center of the small trophy which happened to be Shoemaker's first Kentucky Derby triumph. A racer is perched atop a horse at the apex. This treasure tests at 14K gold. Shoemaker gifted this very prize to his sister-in-law and it has remained with her since. Letter of provenance from family of Willie Shoemaker.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
