Ribot, an undefeated European champion, bred by the world famous breeder, Fredico Tesio, came to the United States on a record breaking stallion lease in 1959. This brochure tells the story of arguably Europe’s greatest racehorse and one of America’s most important imports in the 20th century. This brochure documents in pictures and wonderfully written commentary. The story begins in Italy and ends ultimately at Darby Dan Farm in Lexington, Kentucky.
This brochure is original (printed in 1959), mint condition and just recently discovered in a closet at the Darby Dan Farm office in Lexington, Kentucky. Less than a handful remain for each of these classic Darby Dan stallions. Each brochure is an authentic historical document in prime condition.
