Turkoman - Mounted Shoe

These shoes were the last worn by Turkoman while residing at Darby Dan Farm as a stallion.  Turkoman was victorious in the Grade I Widener Handicap, Grade 1 Marlboro Cup Handicap, Grade 2 Oaklawn Handicap, and Grade 3 Affirmed Handicap.

The oak plaque upon which the shoe is mounted is handmade by retired jockey, Jack Neagle, in the Darby Dan woodshop.  The wood comes from a pin oak tree planted under the direction of E.R. Bradley (Idle Hour Farm - circa 1906) and recovered by Darby Dan Farm after a storm in 2009.

The plaque measures 7x11" and is equipped with a sawtooth hanging unit.  The mounted shoe is accompanied by a certificate of authentication from Owner John Phillips.
