We are delighted to announce a series of virtual Fan Forums for the Secretariat Birthday Celebration offering Zoom discussions with our distinguished panel of hosts and special guests. Forums are ticketed as noted, and each of our offerings will be followed by opportunities to enjoy Q&A, when participation from guests is both encouraged and appreciated. This opportunity is your chance to get the story "straight from the horses' mouths" -- or at least from those whose knowledge and experience with them provide rare insight.

Please Note: Please Note: Fan Forum reservations will be limited in capacity to allow for the most efficient and enjoyable viewing experience. Registrants are advised to download the Zoom application on the device of choice prior to the event for the best possible experience. Fan Forum meeting links and passcodes will be emailed beginning Thursday, March 25 to the email address used when registering for the event.

As an added bonus, jockey Ron Turcotte will join in providing his experiences and expectations working with the Meadow juveniles upon their arrival at the track, including those aboard Secretariat's and Riva Ridge's younger brothers Capital Asset and Capito. Time: 11:30 a.m. EDT, approximate length 40 minutes with Q&A to follow.

Virtual Vault Fan Forum - 1:00 p.m.Virtual Vault Fan Forum - 1:00 p.m.Over a half century has passed since Secretariat took his first steps in the foaling barn at Meadow Farm, and yet we continue to be thrilled when a lost treasure pertaining to “America’s Horse” is discovered. We are very excited to present the Virtual Vault Forum featuring never-before-seen photographs and long-lost film footage featuring the charismatic son of Bold Ruler who would grow up to be a Triple Crown champion.

Among the riveting film clips to be shown during the Virtual Vault Forum will be the long-lost promotional clips produced by the New York Racing Association during the summer of 1973 and a television commercial produced by First & Merchant National Bank spotlighting Secretariat at Claiborne Farm soon after his retirement from racing. Both film spots contain a treasure trove of awe-inspiring slow-motion footage that is among the best imagery to capture the sheer majesty and magnificence of Secretariat in action and leisure.

Highlighting this forum will be the public unveiling of the only known image of Secretariat as a yearling, recently discovered in an obscure Meadow Farm folder from Penny Chenery's office. This never-before-seen photo will premiere during the Virtual Vault Forum and attendees will have the first opportunity to view this historic image and immediately purchase a limited-edition photo prior to its public release. This eagerly anticipated collectible will be sold on a first-come basis while quantities last, with early purchasers receiving the lowest number in the edition.

This Forum will be hosted by Kate Chenery Tweedy and Leeanne Meadows Ladin with special appearances from Ron Turcotte and other guests. A must-see event for Secretariat fans of all ages. Time: 1:00 p.m. EDT, approximate length 40 min with Q&A to follow.

Meeting link and passcode will be emailed beginning Thursday, March 25 to the email address used when registering for the event. Space available on a first-come basis, while quantities last.
