Secretariat and his record-breaking performances in the 1973 Triple Crown is familiar to a legion of fans spanning several generations. The most ardent admirers of the Meadow Stable champion know his heart was a physiological marvel, and twice the size of the average Thoroughbred -- both in the metaphorical sense with his courage and determination, and literally, as the power-packed engine source providing Secretariat’s amazing combination of speed and stamina. Up until now, the man responsible for this amazing discovery, attending veterinarian Thomas Swerczek, has never shared his personal story forever linking him to the legacy of Secretariat.
The fascinating 10-page article by writer Mandy Boggs serves as the feature story in the 2020 premier issue of Kentucky Equestrian magazine with a portrait of Secretariat at Claiborne Farm regally gracing the cover. Boggs provides an in-depth look at Secretariat's necropsy performed by Dr. Swerczek upon the champion's passing in 1989 as well as his reflections on a career spanning more than 50 years in the Bluegrass. The story is part of the 72-page glossy equine-focused publication filled with engaging articles and imagery along with a comprehensive directory of products and services.
A must-have keepsake for any Secretariat enthusiast or historian. Don't get left at the gate, order this collectible piece now, while quantities last.
