Secretariat, winner of the 99th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., sports a blanket of roses as jockey Ron Turcotte pats him in the winner's circle on May 5, 1973. Others are, from left, Mrs. John Tweedy, owner; Lucien Lauren, trainer; and Eddie Sweet, groom. Big Brown would do well this year to emulate Secretariat's performance in the 1973 Belmont Stakes: The champ won by 31 lengths. (AP Photo)
