Tapiture Mounted Shoe

This shoe was worn during the month of November, 2016 by multiple graded stakes winning champion stallion Tapiture while residing at Darby Dan Farm.  Tapiture was victorious in the Grade 2 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes, Grade 2 West Virginia Derby, Grade 3 Ack Ack Handicap, Grade 3 Matt Winn Stakes and the Grade 3 Southwest Stakes.

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.
