1989 Sunday Silence Tac Pin
This pin honors Sunday Silence, winner of the 1989 Kentucky Derby with jockey Patrick Valenzuela up. On a muddy track, he won driving by 2 ½ lengths over rival Easy Goer; Sunday Silence also won the Preakness but disappointed hopes of a Triple Crown by losing the Belmont. After a fourth year injury, he retired to stud in Japan. Sunday Silence was bred by Ernest Galliard at Oak Cliff Thoroughbreds Ltd., owned by H.G.W. Partners (that consisted of his breeder, owner and trainers Hancock, Galliard and Whittingham) and trained by Charles Edward Whittingham. In 1996, Sunday Silence was inducted into the U.S. Racing Hall of Fame.
