What better way to pay tribute the "King" and "Queen" of racing than this artistic tribute to two of horseracing's most popular and adored superstars.
When Zenyatta was announced as the inaugural winner of the Secretariat Vox Populi (Voice of the People) Award she became forever entwined with Big Red - sharing the bond of timeless champions and beloved figures of the American public. This is the first official poster associated with the newly announced award.
The similarities between the fiery chestnut colt and the mahogany bay mare extend far past the excellence they exhibited in their individual racing careers. Yes, both were imposing physical specimens who garnered multiple racing championships and were voted the best of their generation, but they both also demonstrated a charismatic presence and persona that resonated with admirers of all ages and gender. As darlings of the media, they cultivated a growing interest in thoroughbred racing that transcended the sport, attracting seasoned and new fans alike whenever and wherever they ran.
Jaime Corum captures these two phenomenal equine athletes, side by side in a juxtaposed display of balanced beauty. Both champions are elegantly featured in a mixture of warm tones and subtle shadows in classic portrait style with the information of their respective winning connections subtitled below. Each poster measuring 16" x 20" is printed on heavy archival stock, hand-signed by the artist and available with the option of being signed by each horse's respective Hall of Fame jockey - Ron Turcotte (Secretariat) and Mike Smith (Zenyatta).
A wonderful and affordable opportunity to purchase this historic coupling whose legacies are sure to endure for generations to come.
