The Calumet Collection Showcases a Golden Dynasty
Lexington, KY (April, 2001) Eclipse Press announces the publication of The Calumet Collection: A History of the Calumet Trophies.
The legendary Calumet Farm dominated horse racing during the first half of the 20th century. Calumetís horses won more than 500 trophies over five decades a feat that will never be duplicated. Their exploits included a record eight Kentucky Derby victories and two Triple Crowns. The trophies are on permanent display at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington thanks to concerned fans in Kentucky and across the country who helped raise money to keep the trophies from the auction block.
As a tribute to a bygone era in Thoroughbred racing, The Calumet Collection highlights some of these magnificent trophies and the horses that won them. Color photographs of important trophies, such as the Woodlawn Vase, the Jockey Club Gold Cup, and the Diamond Jubilee Kentucky Derby cup, are featured as well as historic photographs of Calumetís champions. The book also contains a foreword by longtime Calumet secretary Margaret Glass.
Authors Judy Marchman and Tom Hall are assistant editors at Eclipse Press. Both have a deep appreciation for the history of Thoroughbred racing and of Calumet Farm. They live in Lexington, Kentucky.
