Secretariat wins... pre-Triple Crown...
Item # 652323
April 8, 1973
NEW YORK TIMES, April 8, 1973
* Secretariat wins Gotham Stakes
* Pre Triple Crown horse races
The front page of the sport's section (inside) has a banner headline: "SECRETARIAT TIES TRACK MARK IN TAKING GOTHAM" with subheads. This reports Secretariat winning his second race as a three year old. It was the first time in his career that he led wire-to-wire. Great to have in this famous NYC title.
A rather rare find as this was before Secretariat was a household name. Likely only to be found in a New York newspaper as it is where the race was held.
Complete in a very thick 200+ page Sunday edition, never bound, minor foxing, generally nice condition.
