Barbaro, Secretariat Art to Support Laminitis Research

secretariat-barbaro.jpg

A new set of prints and a poster featuring Triple Crown winner Secretariat and 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro will benefit the fight against laminitis, the painful hoof disease that ended both their lives.

The works, entitled “Memories of Greatness, were created by equine artist Jaime Corum. They were unveiled the weekend of Aug. 4 and 5 at Saratoga Race Course.

Proceeds will benefit the Laminitis Fund at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s NewBoltonCenter.

The poster shows Secretariat and Barbaro together in one 16- by-20-inch piece, with their names and stables noted.

The print set features the horses separately, along with the artistic marks representing the colors of the silks they carried.

Both the poster and the print sets are available through Secretariat.com.

  4. What beautiful pictures… those are two of the greatest horses, I wish more could have been seen of Barbaro. The cause that these prints are going to help is wonderful as well, laminitis is one of the most damaging and painful equine diseases.
