    1978 Seattle Slew Eclipse Award--Champion Older Horse of the Year. The tenth of thirteen horses to date to claim the sport's ultimate distinction--the Triple Crown--Seattle Slew was a year removed from that string of 1977 victories at Churchill Downs, Pimlico and Belmont when he was recognized as the best "older horse" on the planet by a special body of experts in the field from the National Thoroughbred Racing Society and beyond. Part trophy, part work of art, the award features a majestic figural bronze atop a Kentucky walnut base affixed with a brass plaque. Height is just over ten inches (10").

    The award is accompanied by a letter of provenance stating that it was consigned to auction by Northridge Farms of Franklin Groves, one of the top commercial breeders and yearling consignors, and part of the original group that syndicated Seattle Slew. The award presents without any condition caveats worthy of mention. Letter of provenance as stated.

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