Get a Photo, Halter, Mug, and Blank Notecards of Fast Market ("Markie"), Son of the Legendary Racehorse, Secretariat


PHOTOS: Patricia McQueen has specialized in Thoroughbred photography since 1983 and her favorite subject and favorite Thoroughbred was Secretariat. Fast Market (Markie) is the 2nd oldest living son of Secretariat. He raced in Canada and the United States and is currently a permanent resident at Bright Futures Farm. He spends his days grazing, playing, rolling (his favorite thing to do), and hanging out with his best buddy, Brite Decision.


Patricia has generously made several trips from Boston to our farm in Pennsylvania to photograph and write about Markie, since he is one of Secretariat's stakes winners. What a privilege and honor it is to have her visit Bright Futures Farm! We quickly found that Patricia is one of the most–if not THE most–knowledgeable person on all things "Secretariat" as a sire.

Patricia has generously offered some of her prints of Markie for sale as a fundraiser for Bright Futures Farm. Each of Patricia's photographs is offered in 8x10, 11x14, and 16x20 prints and will be signed by Patricia. (They will not include the watermark you see here on each image.) They are professionally printed and would be a lovely addition to any racing memorabilia collection or for any horse lover!


There are eighteen prints available and each print will be created and shipped by Patricia. All proceeds will benefit the rescue efforts at Bright Futures Farm, a trusted 501(c)(3) equine charity. PRICE INCLUDES FREE SHIPPING TO US AND CANADA.

Son of Secretariat






Our thanks to Marianne Malczewski for the cap and to Lisa and Robert Bulger for waiting in line at Belmont Park to ask Ron to sign it. And of course, thank you so much to Ron Turcotte for this wonderful autographed ball cap!



JUNE 9, 1973: Belmont Park, Elmont, NY

Were you there? Did you know a record was set on that day that still stands today, 45 years later? If you're a racing fan or a horse lover, it probably gives you chills just thinking about that day in 1973 when Secretariat won America’s coveted Triple Crown – the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, and the Belmont Stakes.


Forty-five years later, another record was set on June 9, 2018 at Belmont Park when Secretariat's great, great, great, great grandson, Justify, won the Triple Crown - a feat befitting the descendant of perhaps the greatest Thoroughbred that ever lived. On that day, the man who rode Secretariat to victory in 1973, Ron Turcotte, was there to witness Justify's win and he graciously autographed (and dated) an authentic Secretariat Triple Crown ball cap from 1973 for our charity to auction to the highest bidder! This authentic ball cap is documented by photographs of Ron Turcotte autographing the cap and these photographs will be included with the cap to the winning bidder.


The auction will start on December 5, 2018 on eBay and run for ten days, and the starting bid will be $50. CLICK THE LINK BELOW ON DECEMBER 5TH TO GO TO THE AUCTION.


Auction updates will be made daily on our Facebook page, and if you're not a member of Facebook, no worries! We have a live feed of our Facebook page on the "News" page of our website. Just scroll to the middle of the page and you'll see the feed on the right.


Forty-five years to the day that Ron Turcotte rode Secretariat to their Triple Crown Victory, he autographed the ball cap we're auctioning when a descendant of Secretariat won his own Triple Crown! Join us on December 5th and bid to win on a one-of-a-kind piece of racing history!
