The recently announced Secretariat Heritage Center will get off to a running start on May 4.
On June 9, a strapping chestnut colt named Justify sprang out of the starting gate in the Belmont Stakes and did not relinquish his lead, becoming the 13th Triple Crown winner in the competition’s 99-year history.
Just in time for the May 5 Kentucky Derby, The Meadow Event Park has installed an exhibit called “Salute to Secretariat—Virginia’s Triple Crown Legend” in the Main Street Station gallery.
The first Derby Day at the Meadow promises much more than mint juleps.
“Awwwwwww,” 22 tour participants collectively exhaled after learning that Christopher Chenery never got to see Secretariat win the Triple Crown.
