As opposed to offerings you have seen from others who sell programs filled with writing or stained and torn pages, these programs are untouched, never opened, still stiff from the packing in the original carton casing. The programs have remained preserved in this fabulous mint condition for more than four decades. They are virtually perfect... like Secretariat himself!
Within the program you will find the distinctive green page of the 1973 Derby Field in crisp, perfect condition. The information therein contains the entrant information of that incredibly talented Derby field including Secretariat's arch-rival Sham and three-time horse of the year Forego. Of course almost everyone knows Secretariat won the 1973 Kentucky Derby creating a new track record by running the mile and a quarter race in 1:59 2/5. And some of you probably know that he ran the race in successively faster quarter mile increments on his way to setting the track record which still stands untouched -- almost a half century later. But to put it all in perspective, we are saying that of all the horses who ever ran the Derby in the last 142 years (and there have been close to 1800 of them), Secretariat ran it the fastest in his unique and beautiful way. And now you can claim your own piece of racing history documenting that magical day at Churchill Downs.
We offer the programs as they are now, untouched and unopened. For those who prefer your memorabilia autographed, the program is available signed by Secretariat's jockey Ron Turcotte at no additional charge.
Order both the 1973 program and the Derby Glass together and we will include an official 1973 Kentucky Derby winners circle photo. It is a small token of appreciation to our most ardent fans and supporters who purchase this ultimate duo of original Secretariat memorabilia.
