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.
