Ron Turcotte Signing Appearance

Signing Appearances at National Museum and Saratoga Race Course Aug. 5-7

Ron_TurcotteOn Aug. 5-7, Hall of Fame jockey Ron Turcotte, the 1973 leading rider at Saratoga Race Course, will return to the storied racetrack, the site of his first win aboard Secretariat.

Mr. Turcotte rode the legendary Thoroughbred in a total of four races at Saratoga, and the legacies of the duo forever will be intertwined as the heroes of the historic, record-setting 1973 Triple Crown. On Friday, Aug. 5, Mr. Turcotte will greet guests at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame from 10 a.m. until noon. Afterward, he then will make an appearance at Saratoga Race Course. Over the weekend, the famed jockey will again be at Saratoga on Saturday, Aug. 6, and Sunday, Aug. 7, beginning at 10:30 a.m. each day. Saratoga sessions will be at the booth adjacent to the jockey silks display on vendors row, and Mr. Turcotte will sign autographs and memorabilia as well as be available for photographs with fans at all scheduled appearances.

Coinciding with Mr. Turcotte’s Saratoga appearances, the authentic 1973 Preakness winner’s garland will be on display during the signings at both locations. The garland, an original artifact from the collection of Secretariat’s owner Mrs. Penny Chenery, is being offered for sale later in the year to benefit the equine charity R.A.C.E. Fund.
