Secretariat Fan Special Set! Ltd Ed Matted Artist Print, 4 Photos, and Jockey Card
Ask anyone to name the world's most famous horse and the answer will most likely be Secretariat. His true story is still the stuff of legend. His astonishing 31-length victory in the Belmont Stakes, accomplished after winning the first two racing jewels in the Triple Crown, has yet to be repeated. In the Kentucky Derby, Secretariat set a speed record of 1:59 2/5, and he captured the Preakness Stake with ease, securing the Triple Crown win for 1973. Secretariat was the son of Bold Ruler out of Somethingroyal. Known as "Big Red", the large, beautifully conformed chestnut ran in the blue and white checkered colors of Meadow Stables. He made it on two "Athletes of the Century" lists for his accomplishments. It has recently been discovered that the secret to Big Red's success was his remarkable way of running, which is more like a dog than a typical horse. With his extremely flexible back and hindquarters, he could tuck and spring forward, resulting in two periods each stride where no feet were on the ground, as opposed to one, which is the norm. He was truly a remarkable athlete!
This very special set has been collected for the Secretariat fan. It includes six beautiful items, all suitable for framing:
Four 8x10" photographs of Secretariat - Three taken from the home stretch infield during races and one photo of Secretariat and Chris McCarron being led to the post prior to a race. This photo is a limited edition, numbered 15/395. All are on Kodak professional photo paper and are in nearly perfect condition.
Matted portrait print of Secretariat, with a beautiful head portrait and in inset image of him racing, by Lee English. 11-1/2" x 14". Print is stamped on back with the name and address of the artist, with the phone number hand-corrected by the artist. Wrapped in cello.
Chris McCarron Jockey Card c 1993 by Horse Star Cards with a holographic photo of racing horses on the back. (The card is in fair condition, but would be really neat framed with one or more of the photos.)
An amazing set for a racing fan!!!
