Secretariat Royal Heritage Double-Signed Photo
This captivating Limited Edition portrait of Secretariat is entitled "Royal Heritage." The image originated from a collection of Secretariat photography discovered after more than 40 years in secluded storage. Secretariat is most noted for being the ninth horse to win the American Triple Crown. His 1973 victory at Belmont, when he won by 31 lengths, is considered one of the greatest races of all time. Thus, Secretariat became the first winner of the American Triple Crown in 25 years. The photos capturing the chestnut champion enjoying life off the track were part of a commercial shoot for a regional advertising campaign following Secretariat's retirement to Claiborne Farm. Even today, Secretariat's pedigree is found in many outstanding thoroughbreds. The full-color 16x20" photo, no longer available for purchase, was produced in a limited-edition run of only 100 total pieces to help fund the effort to preserve and restore the historic barns at the Meadow, Secretariat's birthplace in Doswell, Virginia. This photo emanating from the Secretariat Archives is numbered #29/100, and is further distinguished by being hand-signed by the late "Mistress of the Meadow" herself, Penny Chenery, and Hall of Fame jockey Ron Turcotte. The photo is double-matted in a dark brown hardwood frame displaying 28x24" in total and is accompanied by a solid brass engraved halter tag plate and Certificate of Authenticity.
