With Big Brown going for Horse Racing's Triple Crown during Saturday's  
running of the Belmont Stakes, I offer this picture taken 35 years ago,

Secretariat wins the 1973 Belmont Stakes by a still remarkable 34  lengths.
I still have my winning ticket.  The $2.00 bet paid $2.20.
Particulars:  Leica M4, 90mm Tele-Elmarit, High Speed Ektachrome  and a 50% 
As always, comments and critiques welcomed.
