Secretariat


Secretariat Races and Shows On DVD

Here is the list:

1973 Triple Crown-On DVD. Includes the Derby, Preakness Stakes & Belmont Stakes. The Derby includes a very rarely seen 50 minute original entire pre & post race Derby with CBS network coverage with Jack Whitaker, Haywood Hale Broun & Frank Wright. There is wonderful and close up incredible paddock coverage as the 1973 derby field is getting saddled in the paddock. There are interviews with owners and trainers and great close up shots of the field in the paddock and on the track prior to the race and after the race. Chick Anderson who calls the race runs down the entire derby field with stats and info on each horse. Then the horses parade onto Churchill to the classic derby song "My Old Kentucky Home" and then the post parade introductions. Then of course the big race and then incredible post race coverage following the derby which includes Secretariat in the winners circle, race replays, interviews, official prices and the ceremony. The picture quality on the Kentucky Derby coverage is very good. I have two different versions of the Derby. Both are the same and are 50 minutes but one has the original commercials which are incredible to see from 1973.
 
The Preakness Stakes again on  DVD  is a rarely seen 50 minute original entire pre & post race CBS network coverage again with Jack Whitaker, Heywood Hale Broun & Frank Wright. There are interviews with owners and trainers of each horse as they are saddled in the outdoor paddock at Pimlico and wonderful close ups of the entire preakness field. Again Chic Anderson runs down each horse with stats and info. Then the post parade to the song  "Maryland My Maryland" and of course the incredible Preakness Stakes and again wonderful post race coverage with Secretariat in the winners circle, interviews, race replays ,official prices and the ceremony. The picture quality on the Preakness Stakes coverage is very good.

Then to top it all off, on either Video or DVD is a rarely seen 50 minutes of a tremendous Belmont Stakes with original entire pre and post race CBS network coverage on Secretariats incredible Belmont Stakes win again with Jack Whitaker, Haywood Hale Broun & Frank Wright. As in the Derby & Preakness there are interviews and Chic Anderson goes over the entire field with info and stats. Really incredible close up shots of Big Red and the Belmont field as they are being saddled, then the post parade to the song "Sidewalks of New York" and then the great historic race and then all the post race mania with Secretariat in the winners circle, interviews, race replays, official prices and of course the wonderful triple crown ceremony. The song "New York, New York" currently plays during the post parade for the Belmont Stakes. The picture quality is very good for the Belmont Stakes coverage.

 
I also have the new & updated version of "The Life & Times of Secretariat" also DVD.
It came out in 2006 and is an awesome 2 hour life story with a retrospective of the Life and Racing Career of Secretariat and his connections. This by far is the most complete and must have show out of all the shows on Secretariat. It also has 20 of Secretariats 21 Career races from start to finish with the original track announcer calling each race. Outstanding picture quality. It also has a segment on his last race in Canada.

I also have the complete 30 minute ABC Network Coverage on the 1973 Arlington Inv. on DVD with Secretariat. It's an awesome DVD with Chris Schenkel the long-time ABC host doing the original network coverage from ABC. It covers the pre and post race hoopla of the big race and has outstanding shots of Big Red and his competition and his connections and it is in color and it is outstanding in picture quality. Chris has Penny Tweedy and Lucien Lauren with him commentating during the broadcast. Really neat!

I have a 30 minute documentary on DVD called "Big Reds Last Race in Canada" . His last race was at Woodbine in Canada. It is a great show all about Secretariats last race on the grass in Canada, complete with interviews with his connections and fans. It also has his workouts leading to the race and of course his last race.  Picture quality is excellent.

I have the one hour ESPN Classic 2001 Sports Century Series special called "Sports Century"-Secretariat- on DVD.  This is a wonderful one hour life story on Secretariat from birth all the way up until his untimely 1989 death. It is full of great footage of his races, with great close up and  rare footage on Big Red and interviews from his connections and racing experts who followed and covered Secretariat in the press/media. Its a great retrospective of his life. Excellent in picture quality.

Then I have an 30 minute ESPN on DVD Called "Secretariat" # 35 of the 50 Greatest Athletes. It has race footage and chronicles his Triple Crown path and his wonderful career. Excellent in picture quality.

I also have a 30 minute ESPN Classic on DVD called "Run for the Crown-1973". This great show starts with Secretariats birth and 2 yr old career and then follows his great Triple Crown feats and much more. Another great show from ESPN .
Excellent in picture quality.

I also have a 30 minute DVD called -  "GSL -Greatest Sports Legends -Secretariat"- It has race footage and also talks about his career with interviews. This show originally aired in 1975 and the late great John Fecenda is the narrator. He is known for his narrating of football highlights and is known as "The Voice of God". Very good in picture quality. This show and "Big Reds Last Race" show both came out in 1975 and are the first known documentary shows on Secretariat.

I also have the original  45 minute DVD called "The Life and Times of Secretariat". This show came out in 1989 and is a wonderful retrospective of the Life and Racing Career of Secretariat and his connections. It was the first version and since then the last two versions are longer and much better. Excellent in picture quality.

Then finally I have a great 45 minute audio cassette tape that has the original live race call of every race Secretariat ran in his career. It features Dave Johnson, Chic Anderson and other great track announcers. These are the original calls from his races from start to finish. Wonderful to go back in time listening to the calls. Sound quality is excellent. Former CBS Horse Race expert Wyn Elliot narrates this great piece.  

Again all the Secretariat DVDs range from very good to excellent quality in picture, sound & color.

If  your interested in any of the above Secretariat Shows on DVD email me for a price list. I also have all the other Triple Crown races from 1970 thru 2009 and all the Kentucky Derby races from 1918 to 2009 and all the Breeders Cup races from 1984 thru  2009 on  DVD along with lots of other big Stakes races with top horses from around the country from the 1950s,60s,70s,80s, 90s & the 2000's.

Silky Sullivan


I have a nice 10 minute segment on Video or DVD on Silky Sullivan that shows the famous 6 1/2 furlong Santa Anita race and also talks about the great horse- it is a two part video- one part narrated by the late track announcer Todd Creed from Golden Gate Fields that shows great close up shots of Silky after his racing days in a field with his trainer. It also shows the Santa Anita race and talks about Silky. Then the other part is narrated by someone from Southern Calif. and talks about Silky's career and also shows the Santa Anita race with the actual track announcer calling the race. It also talks about the 1958 Kentucky Derby he ran in. Then it also talks about and shows Silky parading near the grandstand every St. Patrick's Day at Santa Anita. He also paraded on St. Patrick's Day at Golden Gate Fields. It is a very nice video and shows wonderful close ups of Silky Sullivan and his rider Willie Shoemaker. Cost on the Silky Sullivan video is $35 and that includes S&H-If you order this video I will add a 30 minute bonus video to the  Silky tape since the Silky video is so short-The footage on this silky video is the only known footage that I have ever seen on Silky Sullivan. I also have lots of other great horses and big stakes races from past and present on vhs video including all the Triple Crowns and Breeders Cup races with network coverage and can email out a few lists if your interested.

Ruffian Races/Shows on DVD

There are 5 different shows on Ruffian on this DVD.

The second show on the DVD is the 10 Ruffian career races shows each race from start to finish with the original track announcer calling the race. Dave Johnson was the announcer for most of her races. The picture quality is very good to excellent on all 5 shows on Ruffian.

The third show on Ruffian is the 30 minute biography on Ruffian that shows her three filly Triple Crown races plus several other big stakes races plus the tragic match race with Foolish Pleasure until the point of the race where the great filly breaks down.

Ruffian-Foolish Pleasure Entire 1975 Match Race Broadcast On DVD
 

It has finally been found! I have located and have in stock the tragic and famed July 1975 Ruffian -Foolish Pleasure Match Race televised by CBS with Jack Whitaker,Woody Hale Broun, Phyllis George & Chic Anderson. It is 52 minutes long and in my over 25 years of collecting Horse Race Videos/DVDs  I have never ever seen anything close to this! To me this is the most incredible find ever as far as vintage horse racing shows. I and most if not all of you have only seen clips of a few seconds to maybe 30 seconds on parts of this telecast. For years it seemed that this broadcast did not exist. 

The picture quality is good to very good.

It is a very unique telecast as during parts of the telecast with Jack Whitaker and or Chic Anderson or the other CBS crew doing their interviews, talking, etc., you can also hear Dave Johnson cut in with Track announcements. This has the entire telecast but does end about 5 or so minutes prior to the real ending of the TV telecast. The reason I know this is because it stops after much of the post race activities.

It starts off with nostalgic looks back at other famous match races and interviews and also shows both horses in their paddocks getting saddled prior to the race with their trainers and connections and also has interviews with both owners in the stands prior to the race. 
Then it shows the horses parading in the paddock area as they make their way to the track for the post parade. It shows the post parade with track announcer Dave Johnson calling the post parade. Then it shows the horses warming up on the track and then the great and ill fated match race. Dave Johnson calls the race but you can hear Chic Anderson calling it for CBS TV also in the background.

In all the clips I have ever seen on this tragic race the race always stops when the great Ruffian breaks down. But this telecast keeps the camera on Foolish Pleasure throughout the rest of the race but cuts back to the injured Ruffian at least twice and then back to Foolish Pleasure as he coasts home uncontested. Then after the race it focuses on Ruffian and the horse ambulance van pulling up to the injured horse and then for the next several minutes all the CBS TV telecast crew speculate on the injury on Ruffian with none of them knowing the severity even as the show ends. If interested in a DVD of this broadcast please email me or call me.
Thanks,

SILKY SULLIVAN ON DVD:

I have a nice & rare 10 minute segment of Silky Sullivan on DVD that shows the famous 6 1/2 furlong Santa Anita race where Silky comes from dead last and about 40 lengths behind to win by a head at the wire and also talks about the great horse. It is a two part video, one part is narrated by the late Golden Gate Fields track announcer Todd Creed and shows great close up shots of Silky after his racing days in a field grazing on grass with his trainer along side. It also shows the famous Santa Anita race and talks about Silky. Then the other part is narrated by someone from Southern Calif. and talks about Silky's career and also shows another version of the famous Santa Anita race with the actual track announcer calling the race. It also talks about the 1958 Kentucky Derby he ran in. Then it also talks about and shows Silky parading near the grandstand on St. Patrick's Day at Santa Anita. He also paraded on St. Patrick's Day at Golden Gate Fields on years he was not at Santa Anita .It is very nice footage and shows wonderful close ups of Silky Sullivan and his rider Willie Shoemaker. There is another segment that is all about the 1958 Derby with Silky. This is the only known footage out there on Silky Sullivan. Very rare footage indeed. Cost on the Silky Sullivan DVD is $35 and that includes S&H. Since the Silky footage is only about 10 to 12 minutes long I also included a one hour bonus show called "Thoroughbred Hero's". This is a wonderful show about many of the great horses of all time. The quality on both shows are excellent. I also have lots of other great shows on great horses on DVD and big stakes races from past and present on DVD including all the Triple Crowns and Breeders Cup races with network coverage and can email out a few lists if your interested.
Call or email if interested.

Swaps On DVD:

I have a nice piece on Swaps on DVD from Hollywood Park and another piece from show called "Thoroughbred Hero's" and yet another segment from a show called "The Way It Was" and that is about a 10 minute segment with Eddie Arcaro and Willie Shoemaker with Curt Gowdy talking all about the Swaps-Nashua rivalry with great footage and they also talk about the 1955 Kentucky Derby and there is great footage of the Derby as well. Its really wonderful. The other two segments are about 10 minutes total for both. So I have about 20 minutes on the Great Swaps. The Hollywood Park piece shows his Gold Cup win and also the Statue unveiling and the Thoroughbred Hero's segment shows some of his races and talks about his connections and about Swaps and his career.


I also have much more on DVD of other great horses from the past and present including all the Triple Crowns and Breeders Cups with network coverage.
