Secretariat wins... pre-Triple Crown...



Item # 676616

April 08, 1973

SPORT'S SECTION ONLY for the Chicago Tribune, April 8, 1973

* Secretariat wins Gotham Stakes
* Pre Triple Crown horse races


The top of page 12 of this section has a two column heading: "Secretariat scores, equals Big-A mark" with photo. (see) First report coverage on Secretariat winning his second race as a three year old. It was the first time in his career that he led wire-to-wire.
A rather rare find as this was before Secretariat was a household name.
Complete sport's section only with 28 pages, nice condition.
