HRN, please correct your chart on the 1973 Belmont Stakes. Ron Turcotte rode Secretariat in all of the Triple Crown races. Eddie Maple replaced Ronnie in the Canadian Invitational , only because Ronnie had been given days ( suspension ) prior to the Canadian Invitational. Otherwise Ronnie wouldhave ridden Red in the Canadian Invitational.
Excuse me but Ron Turcotte rode Secretariat in all three of the Triple Crown Classics. It wasn't until the Canadian Invitational that Ron Turcotte was replaced on
