|Secretariat From the RailPerhaps the most artistic and dramatic shot we offer. "Secretariat From the Rail" features our hero captured in a split-second moment as he displayed that trademark snap of the forelegs and powerful extension inherent in the champion's enormous stride. With an adoring crowd of over 40,000 looking on, Secretariat, with Ron Turcotte aboard, initiated their post Triple Crown success with a nine length victory in the Arlington Invitational. The photo conveys the unified intent of horse and rider, a blended harmony of focus and athleticism that only the greatest possess.|

|Secretariat Stretch DriveA classic head-on composition of Secretariat and Ron Turcotte, both bedecked in the famous blue and white Meadow Stable colors as they drive for the wire in the Arlington Invitational.
