Superb provenance on this authentic lock of hair from thoroughbred legend Secretariat. Our consignor's mother worked for and was very good friends with longtime Lexington resident and member of the horse community Virgil Christian. He arranged to have the consignor meet Secretariat in the late 1980s. Virgil brought them to Churchill Downs to watch the racehorses during their workout/exercises. After the tour around the area, they went to the stable where Secretariat was and, in person, his groom gifted her this very 12" lock of his mane. Included are photos and ephemera from our consignor's trip.
