Finally acquired a Secretariat Stretch Run Turcotte autographed photo

Aloha gents.

I'm certainly not bragging as these can be had without too much difficulty.

I have wanted a Turcotte autographed Secretariat Stretch Run "Look Back" photo for a very long time. I just never got around to acquiring one. Last week I finally pulled the trigger on an authenticated photo and it just arrived.

I will have to find a spot in my office where it is in plain sight to give me daily motivation. I have always loved this photo.

Thank you sir. I was a young teen when my father sat me down and made me watch the Belmont when Secretariat won. I was not really tuned-in to horse racing at that time, but I knew it was a big deal to win the Triple Crown. I certainly knew it was a big deal to win any race (let alone the might Belmont) by 31 lengths.

Just hung it in the office. Right over my desk. I will probably be like Notre Dame players and rap the photo every morning for inspiration before I start handicapping.

I got one back in 2014 and have it hung in the man cave. Man what a picture that I always enjoy.

I have some nice autographed pictures in my office, but that would be a topper. Very nice.
