"One of my favorite photos of Secretariat is this one I took of him after being saddled in the infield for the Preakness.
Big Red stood motionless looking straight ahead. Standing only a foot away, I knew this was a once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity, so I reached for my camera and quickly got the shot before the horse moved. I was the only one standing on this side of him and just as I clicked the shutter, Big Red reacted to the clicking of the shutter by turning his head and staring right at me, or I should say through me. I clicked again, and captured those eyes peering at me through the blue and white blinkers make this one of the most special photos I’ve ever taken. To be that close to Secretariat and see him in all his splendor was as good as it gets."
