Britains Racing Colours Famous Owners, American series: CV Whitney. Cornelius Vanderbilt "C.V." ("Sonny") Whitney was an American businessman, film producer, writer, philanthropist, polo player, and government official, as well as the owner of a leading stable of thoroughbred racehorses. Born in Old Westbury, New York in 1899 he was the son of the wealthy and socially prominent Harry Payne Whitney and Gertrude Vanderbilt. As a member of both the Whitney and Vanderbilt families, he inherited a substantial fortune. However, Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney proved to be a very capable businessman in his own right.

He was the third generation of Whitneys to be heavily involved in horse racing. Although he had fifteen horses compete in the Kentucky Derby, Whitney never won the prestigious race. One of his homes was the "Cady Hill" estate at Saratoga Springs, New York, not far from the Saratoga Race Course. It was there, in 1950, that he founded the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame and served as its first president. He died in 1992.

Jockey wears Whitney's pale blue silks with brown cap and rides a black horse. Whip complete. Contained in an original two-part box with name label to lid

Manufacturer reference RC 94

Both horse and jockey in very good to excellent condition with only very minor paint loss. Box in very good condition with only minor edge rubbing and discoloration

Postage and packing

Postage and packing is not included in the prices quoted and Lilliput World will always pack securely and send by the buyer’s choice of delivery service at your cost.

For those of you who prefer to click straight through and pay, we have given a set of postage options based on value and destination area. By definition, these have to be a best guess as the permutations of sizes, weights and values for sale on this site are huge.

So, if you prefer to decide what you want to buy and then contact us with details of your preferred shipment method and destination, we will be happy to give you a specific quote and then issue your Paypal invoice. The cost quoted will be the actual cost of postage, including any insurance, plus a small amount to cover the packing materials used.

If the buyer asks for the goods to be sent without insurance, then Lilliput World will only be responsible for the value that can be reclaimed as standard from the chosen carrier.

If you do complete the sale automatically and the system charges you excessive postage, this will be refunded to you via Paypal once the correct postage is known. Likewise, we cannot be held to deliver goods to international destinations where the automatic postage supplied is significantly less than the actail cost. We will then contact you and discuss the options and take additional payment as required.

Returns

We do our best to ensure that our descriptions are accurate to the best of our knowledge. Under UK Law, any buyer has full rights of return, including return postage, if Lilliput World is shown to have misrepresented an item.

But we cannot accept items for return where buyers have changed their mind. So please ask any questions before purchase to make sure that you know exactly what you are buying.
