Secretariat.com is proud to offer the official Secretariat Triple Crown Print. This extraordinary print features a brilliant image by Neil Leifer, arguably the most acclaimed and accomplished photographer in the world today. Released to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Secretariat's sweep or horseracing's most coveted accomplishment, Mr. Leifer allowed this image to be published in large print form and made available to the public for the first time.
Perhaps the single most exemplary color image from the 1973 Triple Crown, Secretariat is captured in vivid detail. With Hall of Fame jockey Ron Turcotte piloting the gleaming chestnut colt, both sporting the distinctive blue and white checkered Meadow Stable silks, it is clearly evident how Secretariat came to be known as America's Horse. The close-up image practically transports the viewer into the majesty of the moment, encompassing the strength, speed, and competitive spirit inherent to the subject. Nearly every attribute which characterized Secretariat's immense popularity during this glorious Triple Crown campaign is on display here: from the power-laden shoulder to the billowing mane, to the focused determination of both horse and rider, unified in rhythmic harmony in their pursuit of victory.
Each print, produced on the finest archival museum stock, measures 18" x 24", and features information in the margin about the Meadow team and Secretariat's winning times in the Kentucky Derby Preakness, and Belmont Stakes. For the discerning collector, we offer a special foil-stamped limited edition, numbering only 153 pieces, hand-signed by Turcotte as well as the "First Lady of Racing," Secretariat's owner Penny Chenery.
