This commemorative ballcap offers a high level of quality and workmanship that Secretariat’s 50th Birthday deserves. This one-time, limited-run ballcap, originally intended as a giveaway item for the first 250 patrons of the cancelled Birthday Celebration, is now being offered for purchase and is certainly destined to be an instant collector's item representing the milestone Virginia event that unfortunately never occurred.
On the front of this impressive retro trucker-style cap is a large embroidered circular patch featuring a colorful impressionistic Secretariat by Lisa Palombo. The contrasting navy brim features the familiar checkerboard pattern representing the Meadow Stable and the prescient tag line, "A Legend Is Born," alluding to its most famous runner. The right side of the cap contains the Meadow Stable silks insignia in detailed embroidery, while the left side displays the recognizable logo of cap sponsor Colonial Downs, home of the world renowned Secretariat Turf Course. Finally, the back velcro closure shows “1973 Triple Crown,” paying tribute to Secretariat's pinnacle achievement in the sport.
A must-have for any Secretariat collector, but only while they last!
