1973 Important and beautiful full-color photograph by Caufield and Shook (the official photographers of the Kentucky Derby) and showing the famous race horse "Secretariat" in the winner's circle at the Kentucky Derby. The photo was linen backed and mounted into a photo-album by the photographer and presented to the track superintendent at Churchill Downs in 1973. We removed this image and soaked the linen backing off, which revealed the important Kodak watermarks. We also have the original album cover and documentation if the buyer wishes to have photographs for provenance and authentication (also see other black and white photo we have in this auction that was removed from the same album and dated on the front by the photographer). This is the only full-color image of "Secretariat" in the winners circle at the Kentucky Derby we have ever seen and it is being offered here for the first time ever!
