Secretariat

A superior athlete with unmatched celebrity status, Secretariat is an icon of Thoroughbred racing history. In 1973, Secretariat swept the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes to claim the coveted Triple Crown, breaking the 25 year drought and setting track records that stand to this day. Learn more about Secretariat’s award-winning career, the farm that bred him and his stablemate Riva Ridge, and the team that guided both of them to fame.

Along with items from the Kentucky Derby Museum Permanent Collection, the exhibit features artifacts generously loaned by the Chenery family, the Secretariat Trust, Secretariat.com, and Lee Carmichael.
