The gold standard of Thoroughbred horse racing in America, Secretariat, is lauded in these Sports Illustrated magazines. The greatest Triple Crown winner, he was never on the cover of the magazine until the iconic pre-Belmont issue. So, these magazines describe his races but only one features Secretariat on the cover. The first magazine, with Mark Spitz on the cover, describes Secretariat’s record breaking Kentucky Derby. The second covers the Preakness and his amazing sweep from last to first on the first turn. The third, with George Foreman on the cover, reports on Secretariat’s world record breaking victory in the Belmont Stakes. And the fourth has the famous pre-race Belmont cover, featuring Secretariat and his owner. All magazines are complete and, for 45 years old, are in very nice condition. Starting bid $50.00, with shipping paid by the donor.
