The first thing you see as you enter the park is Secretariat Plaza and the life-size bronze statue of 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat just after winning the Kentucky Derby being led by his groom, Eddie Sweat, with jockey Ron Turcotte in the irons. The 1500 pound statue was sculpted by Edwin Bogucki and was unveiled in July 2004 and dedicated in April 2006.
