The famed winners circle photo celebrating the May 5, 1973 Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. The composite photo features Secretariat as he crosses the finish line in the amazing time of 1:59 2/5 for the 1 1/4 mile race -- setting a new (and still existing) track record. The white mid-margin contains the official information from the race, while the winners circle image below captures a rose-adorned Secretariat, wearing his historic 1A saddlecloth with beaming jockey Ron Turcotte aboard. A wonderful photo capturing a quintessential moment in the history of horse racing.
The photo contains the authentic signatures of Mr. Turcotte and Secretariat's luminary late owner Penny Chenery and is double-matted within a rustic wood frame with solid brass engraved haltertag plate. Measures approximately 22" x 26" in total and accompanied by Certificate of Authenticity. The perfect companion piece for our other Kentucky Derby auction items!
