Secretariat, by Raymond Woolfe, Jr., the 25th Triple Crown Anniversary Edition is a celebration of the memory of America’s most beloved racing champion. The first authorized biography and chronology of the life and career of the legendary American Thoroughbred champion, Secretariat was originally published in 1974 immediately following his retirement from racing to stud at Claiborne Farm. The book was an instant success, favorably reviewed by NY Times, CBS TV, NBC TV, Sports Illustrated, Daily Racing Form, Time, Philadelphia Inquirer, Blood-Horse, and many other major media. Selling over 60,000 copies in its first 8 months and named to B. Dalton’s prestigious “perennial list”(a tribute in the trade to a book considered to be a timeless best seller), Secretariat took on numbers which had been the privilege of few other books about horses. Today, book sellers specializing in out of print editions are reaping prices of from $350 upwards to $600 for first edition copies of the book. Copies signed by the author along with signatures of some or all of Secretariat’s entourage are valued at over $2,000 a copy. The magic of the great horse is incurable.
