Perhaps the most famous and recognizable photo from the Tony Leonard collection, the breathtaking image of Secretariat in the paddock prior to being saddled for the Belmont Stakes remains a visual testament to his beauty, strength, and charismatic presence. The image captures the champion just moments before he would re-write racing history by winning "the Test of the Champion" by 31-lengths to capture the 1973 Triple Crown.
Secretariat is featured in all his glory at the peak of fitness and athletic prowess. Poised for greatness and full of confidence, the serenity of the scene belies the coiled competitive spirit residing within the radiant chestnut colt, as well as the ardent crowd eagerly anticipating his paddock arrival.
Produced from the original negative, each clear and vibrant photo is printed on the finest archival stock and available with the collectible option of being hand-signed by Big Red's Hall of Fame jockey Ron Turcotte. Don't miss the chance to add this historic photo to your Secretariat collection.
Available in 8" x 10"; 11" x 14"; 16" x 20" - Larger sizes by special request.
