Ron Turcotte and “Big Red” are inseparable in racing history, and on Sunday the Hall of Fame rider will be at Monmouth Park for a Secretariat signing to benefit racing charities.

            Turcotte, who was in the irons when Secretariat captured the 1973 Triple Crown and set records in all three races on the way to back-to-back Horse of the Year honors, was paralyzed in a racing accident in 1978. Since then, he has been a tireless advocate and fundraiser for the disabled and visits race tracks to raise awareness and money for charities which include the Jockey Guild’s Permanently Disabled Jockey Fund (PDJF).

            Turcotte, North America’s leading stakes-winning rider in 1972-73, will be at the Secretariat tent signing autographs and selling Secretariat memorabilia from 11:30 a.m. to the last race. All proceeds will be donated to charity.
