His muscular and balanced conformation is reflects the power and grace he manifested on the racetrack. Corum's masterful and deft touch of shadowing captures the gleaming, golden chestnut champion within a subtle shaft of light from above, which provides an ethereal quality to the print.
Limited to 300 total pieces and originally produced with the option of Penny Chenery's coveted hand-signed signature, this particular piece is one of the few that was additionally hand-signed by Secretariat's Hall of Fame jockey Ron Turcotte, and the only print to be double mounted within a custom gilded gold wooden frame measuring 24” x 28" in total. Printed on the finest acid-free paper archival art stock and signed and hand-numbered 171/300 by the artist.
