It is one of the most famous photographs in American racing history: jockey Ron Turcotte rides a flower-garlanded Secretariat into the winner’s circle at Belmont Park racetrack in New York in 1973.
The victory made Secretariat a legend – the first horse in a quarter century to have achieved the Triple Crown, which lauds the capture by a three-year-old of the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes in a single year.
