Introducing the newest installment to our series of 45th Anniversary "Race Call" line of products. When Secretariat broke out of the gate and into racing history on June 9, 1973, he entered the rarified air reserved for only the greatest equine champions. His phenomenal 31-length track record-breaking victory in the 1973 Belmont Stakes remains one of the most significant moments in American sporting history. Perfectly complimenting the spectacular performance was track announcer Chic Anderson's legendary call of the race - a timeless narrative capturing the moment in all its glory.
The back of the 45th Anniversary Belmont Call shirt features a powerful head-on image of the Meadow Stable champion superimposed amongst the entire transcribed race call. Subtly shaded within the background of the text is the number 2:24 - representing Secretariat's jaw-dropping track and world record time for the 1 1/2 mile "Test of the Champion." Completing the eye-catching appeal of this super-soft heather blue shirt is a small descriptive Triple Crown reference appropriately located over-the-heart on the front left chest.
A perfect companion piece to the Anniversary Derby Call Shirt and a must for any Secretariat enthusiast who remembers that Big Red "tremendous machine"!!!
