1930 Gallant Fox Tac Pin
This pin honors Gallant Fox, winner of the 1930 Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown with U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee and 1923 and 1925 Derby-winning jockey Earl Sande up. Gallant Fox’s lead was contested during the first turn of the Derby, but he steadily pushed himself ahead to win over runner-up Gallant Knight. Gallant Fox then went on to win the Preakness and Belmont Stakes to become the second Triple Crown winner. He was bred at Claiborne Farm near Paris, Kentucky and was owned by William Woodward, Sr. of Belair Stud in Collington, Maryland. His trainer was Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons. In his retirement, Gallant Fox sired 1935 Triple Crown winner Omaha. The U.S. Racing Hall of Fame made him an inductee in 1957 and Blood-Horse Magazine named him #28 on their Top 100 Racehorses of the 20th Century.
