BreyerFest 2018 Dark Horse Surprise Run Numbers
Breyer posted the BreyerFest 2018 Dark Horse Surprise run numbers. Here is the information on the BreyerFest Blog with the official numbers:
We did promise to unveil the numbers behind Dark Horse Surprise so here you go…
The most common colorway was the Splash Palomino at 1050 matte models and 175 glossed models. Next was the Appy with 850 matte models and 175 glossed. Closely following was the Bay Pinto with 575 matte horses and 175 glossed. Next up was the snazzy Decorator with 425 matte models and 175 glossed.
Surprisingly (or maybe not so surprisingly given the hint in the name) the Black model was the most rare with only 225 matte models and 175 glossed.
What model did you get? And do you have a favorite amongst the ten different variations?

Breyer Jackpot & Woodford – BreyerFest 2018 Raffle Models
Breyer reposted the pictures of two of the BreyerFest 2018 Raffle models. Only 25 of each will be raffled off with 1 additional made for the auction. The first model is Woodford, the new Shire Gelding mold sculpted by Karen Gerhardt in a beautiful silver dapple pinto.
The second model is the brand new Breyer Premier Club Bristol mold in a spectacular chestnut leopard appaloosa. I just love this one (and Woodrow too!)
Here is what the BreyerFest Blog had to say about Woodford and Jackpot.
Over the last 28 years of BreyerFest, we have raised over $1,100,000 for charity! And it’s all thanks to our Breyer Fans!
The contributions came from the money raised in the Silent Auction, Live Auction, and the Breyer Benefit Raffles. Last year alone, more than $85,000 was donated to a wide variety of causes close to our heart.
As usual, we’re hoping for the biggest year ever. But we need your help!
There are several great ways you can contribute to our amazing beneficiaries!
Breyer Benefit Raffle
You’ve already met the Saturday and Sunday Benefit Raffles horses, Woodford and Jackpot. Each of the beautiful models is limited to 26 pieces (25 models for the Raffle and 1 model in the Live Auction). Our lucky winners will certainly be lucky to take home either of these handsome horses.

Dead Heat – BreyerFest 2018 Special Run
Dead Heat is a BreyerFest 2018 Special Run, presumably a Tent Special Run. Of note, the Breyer Tent location will be moved away from the Breyer Store this year. I’m curious to see what the configuration will look like! Dead Heat is the Ruffian mold in a pretty chestnut blanket appaloosa. Dead Heat is the term used when 2 competitors finish a race at the exact same moment. I really like the color on this one but I’m not sure what to think about the appaloosa coloring going along with the Off to the Races BreyerFest theme. I haven’t heard of an appaloosa colored Thoroughbred but I know that there are pintos and other fun colors! That might be a fun little something to research during some down time 🙂
Dead Heat appears to have the longer tail unlilke the shortened tail of the Breyer 1757 American Pharoah.
Prior releases on the Ruffian mold also had the longer tail. American Pharoah was the first on the mold to have the shortened tail.
Breyer 597 Ruffian
Breyer 715505 Black Caviar
And just for fun, here is one of the lovely Custom Breyer Ruffians that passed through here:
And here is a Custom Breyer Steampunk Ruffian by Elayne Watrus:
And speaking of racehorses, we have the lovely Breyer 2018 California Chrome in stock and available for immediate shipment 🙂
Here is what the BreyerFest 2018 Blog has to say about Dead Heat:
Dead Heat is on Susan Carlton Sifton’s Ruffian mold, #597, and has been painted a bright, rich chestnut snowcap blanket appaloosa and is sure to dazzle on your shelf!
Dead Heat is the second in our BreyerFest Off to the Races Special Run line-up and was named after that rare moment in racing when two or more competitors finish a race exactly evenly.
Keep an eye on the BreyerFest blog as we continue the countdown to BreyerFest with a lot more models!
