"Secretariat's Last Portrait" Print
This elegant photograph of Secretariat is one of the most recognized of the Triple Crown champion. The stately headshot of Secretariat was taken by Tony Leonard who had the perfect plan to get this shot. All the light from outside the barn was blocked and the black backdrop was setup for the perfect portrait shot. Tony also was going to photograph Seattle Slew and Affirmed this exact same way. Tony's idea was to take the photo's straight on, but Secretariat being the camera hound he was, turned slightly to the side and looked back at the camera...perfect shot!!! After seeing this, Tony took Seattle Slew's and Affirmed portraits just as Secretariat had shown him. Print size is 16x20.
