Four vintage photos of famed racehorse Secretariat.

He is seen nuzzling his exercise boy. In very good- condition. There is moderate age-toning throughout, slight warping along the right edge, and light wear to the left edge. The verso has a red filing stamp, a notation in blue ink, and a pasted paper caption date-stamped “May 24 1973”. The second photo in this series is a 10” x 6.5” type 1 photograph of Secretariat at the Marlboro Cup race in 1973. In very good+ condition. There is a faint crease in the bottom left corner, and the verso is file-stamped “Sep 23 1982”. The third item is a 10.5” x 9” photo showing jockey Ron Turcotte atop Secretariat at Belmont in September 1973, just three months after Secretariat’s Triple Crown win. In very good condition. Minor warping appears near the right and left edges of the photograph, and slight age-toning in the margins near the top right edge. The verso has a pencil notation, and a now-separated pasted paper caption (indicating the photographer as “Farrell” and dating the photo to “9/21/73”). The fourth image was taken in January of 1974, after Secretariat’s retirement. It shows Secretariat being fitted for horseshoes by a blacksmith. In very good condition.
