This is a gorgeous photograph of Jean Cruguet piloting Seattle Slew to Triple Crown glory in the 1977 Belmont Stakes at historic Belmont Park. In the “Test of the Champion”, Seattle Slew became the first race horse to win the Triple Crown as an undefeated race horse, an extraordinary horse racing feat. He would go on to even greater horse racing glory by defeating 1978 Triple Crown champion Affirmed in the 1978 Marlboro Cup Invitational at Belmont Park. This was the first time in horse racing history that two Triple Crown winners met in a race. After retirement from horse racing, Seattle Slew went into a stud career. He was a $17,500 yearling sales purchase, a figure that even in the mid 1970’s wasn’t a lot of money for a top class race horse. However as a stallion, Seattle Slew went on to command the highest stud fee in the world for many years. A true example of how life can make anything possible.
This is a gorgeous photograph of Secretariat walking calmly from his barn to the paddock prior to the Preakness Stakes, the second jewel in racing’s Triple Crown. His subsequent Belmont Stakes world record of 2:24 flat was superior to any Belmont Stakes running performance by at least 10 lengths. Secretariat’s three year old season was the greatest run by any horse racing champion ever. During the 1973 Triple Crown season, Secretariat was on the cover of Time Magazine, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated. This was the zenith of horse racing prominence in the eyes of the American public. “Big Red” was ridden by Ron Turcotte and trained by Lucien Laurin.
