Profile: G1 Quarter Horse Stallion #59197

Regular Run Play Set
#59197 Little Red Stable Set
1997-99


This G1 Quarter Horse was a pleasant surprise for collectors. The promotional pictures showed models from the 1995 Assortment, but the models actually found in the box were something different - the alabaster Citation in the picture turned into an alabaster Quarter Horse Stallion in reality.

The colour of this run differed from the traditional alabaster colour in that the body had a very light wash of grey over the whole model, rather than the typical stark-white body - the level of shading varies between individuals. This colour in the horse world translates into a later stage of gray, which is easy enough to find examples of in the Quarter Horse and stock pony breeds.
