Secretariat wins 1973 triple crown...

Item # 704954

June 14, 1973

THE VILLAGE VOICE (weekly), Greenwich Village, New York, June 14, 1973

* Secretariat wins the triple crown
* Thoroughbred horse racing
* Belmont Stakes (3 of 3)

The front page has a one column heading: "A horse for all seasons" Article continues on page 40 with related photo. (see images) Secretariat won the triple crown just a few days earlier. Being a weekly publication, this is actually a first report in this newspaper.
I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
Other interesting items from the counter-culture era. Complete in 112 pages, tabloid-size, one crease across the center, very minor margin wear, nice condition.

Provenance note: This issue comes from The Village Voice's own archives, part of their in-house collection used to create their digital archive.

Alert: Many issues of The Village Voice contain articles and/or photos which some consider offensive, and are certainly inappropriate for children. Please purchase with discretion.
