Countdown to the Triple Crown

Secretariat, Ron Turcotte up, winning the 1973 Belmont Stakes (NYRA)

The “Countdown to the Triple Crown” fundraiser falls exactly three months before the Kentucky Derby and will kick off our year of celebrating the 50th anniversary of Secretariat’s Triple Crown win in 1973! This Saturday evening event will feature hundreds of silent auction items displayed throughout the Museum galleries. We will offer beer, wine, soda and light refreshments, and entertainment, including our 16-minute signature film "What It Takes: Journey to the Hall of Fame." We are excited to offer an online auction component so supporters from throughout the country can participate as well (stay tuned for the link!). Attendees will mingle with live music, light refreshments, a 50/50, and bid on some hot items!

Check back soon for more updates, including auction items!
