June 17, 2011 Peter, Today, I received from your Gallery the most “AWESOME” picture ever, which was my Mother’s Day gift from my son. I will never forget it….a picture of Secretariat running the Belmont Stakes, signed by jockey Ron Turcott!!!! It just does not get any better!!! It was 1973 all over again…..he was the first horse that I ever watched run a race and of course he ran and won it all that year…..he was a Triple Crown winner like no other!!! I loved that horse. Thank you, for not only the main piece, but for all of the additional pictures and memorabilia that you sent. I really appreciate the personal attention that you gave to me and my son,,,,,it made my day!!!!
Feb 7, 2011 Peter, I just wanted to say that my father loved the Secretariat photo I gave him for Christmas. Thanks so much for you help and generosity, and hope your holidays were wonderful as well! Best, Alex J.
Dec 23, 2010 I received the package yesterday…the photo looks beautiful! And I really like the other photos you sent and I know my husband will too. Thank you again, it’s been a pleasure. Happy New Year. -Michele B
Dec. 18, 2010 Peter, I just received the package 10 minutes ago and it is beyond what I expected. Thank you so much for everything you did and I’m sure my son will be elated. I think he’s only expected the one photo and he will get more than that,. I will contact you after the new year in regards to the DVD. Again, thank you so much for everything. You actually restored by faith in mankind. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year. Jerry

July 6, 2010 Peter, Received framed photo as scheduled and what a magnificent photo and frame, thank you very much it was well received. Hope you had a good fourth. Thank You RB.
December 2, 2009 Peter, First let me apologize for not getting back with you sooner. Phil received the photos, and everything else (wow), beautifully packaged, all safe and sound. He’s asked me a couple of times if I’ve contacted you to thank you for the extra special treatment and each time I had to admit I hadn’t. Now, HE’S being the pushy one with me! HA!
He also asked me to order another Belmont Secretariat to be sent to his brother, Charles, in Arizona. Do you have another available??? His brother has loved the horses…well, the races and the betting, to be honest, for his entire life. He’d really get a kick out of getting one of your signed photos. GM
May 23, 2009 Thank you so much for my picture. It was a surprise birthday gift for my boyfriend. HE LOVED IT!!!!!
Thank you for the other pictures you gave me too. Excellent customer service.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SITE FOR ANYONE LOOKING FOR HORSE RACING PICTURES!!! Laura Anne M.
April 16, 2009 Peter, just wanted to let you know that I did receive you package last Friday. I opened it and, WOW, beautiful photos. Thank you so much for all the extras. Again, I do appreciate all that you sent. That B&W of Secretariat is amazing!! I’m sure my son will cherish it for years to come. I’ll send you off a quick e-mail once he has received them. LRT
Jan 4, 2009. Thanks Peter! The photo arrived today and is gorgeous. Thanks so much for the DVD. You’ve sent me a few before and I really enjoyed watching them. I’ve watched them several times, in fact. Happy New Year to you and your family. Looking forward to doing business with you in 2009. Cheryl

June 2, 2008 Peter, I received your package and can’t thank you enough for the additional pictures of Ruffian and Secretariat. My wife and I are also looking forward to looking at the Secretariat and Ruffian DVDs! If life had turned out different, could you imagine the offspring! We can’t wait to see the Belmont this weekend in person, and going to Saratoga later this summer. We look forward to any opportunity to meet you and so much appreciate your efforts to get us permission to put flowers on Ruffian’s grave. We visited with the family in Maryland this week and our horse loving granddaughter can’t wait for her visit to Belmont park. Thanks again for all of your kindness.

I hope you enjoyed the Breeder’s Cup. I did. I will be watching to see what Halfbridled does in the future. I was pretty impressed with her. All in all a great day and I was happy for Richard Mandella. Thank you very much. LM
Just got package #1 last night. The photos are gorgeous! Thanks. Although by my count, I only paid you for 4 of the 10. I’m glad I’m not your accountant.
Each of the pictures is really dramatic. Great additions to the coffee table portfolio you suggested.
You may think I’m nuts, but I sometimes feel that if I look at the picture of the 1978 Belmont finish long enough, Alydar will get his nose in front.
Crazy, huh? –MC
Karen June 12, 2007 Hi, Peter: So nice to be doing business with you again, and especially in reference to Ruffian. I, too, watched the TV movie about her. It was enjoyable, but the best part was seeing the archival footage of her at the end. By the way, which HBO special did you see about her?
I would love to have a print of the Barbaro photo you mentioned, and I so appreciate your including other bonus items as well. The photos I’ve gotten from you over the years remain the gems of my collection.
What did you think about that fabulous filly Rags to Riches in the Belmont? Always a pleasure talking with you, Peter.

It was very kind of you to send additional photos and the DVD’s! I remember Secretariats triple crown races very well ( I was eleven at the time, and an avid rider).

Dec 24, 2010 Hey Peter, Just wanted to let you know that my dad called me tonight, and he was so excited about the pictures. This is probably the first time he has EVER sounded really excited about a gift I had sent him. Actually, I don’t believe he has ever called me as soon as he has gotten a gift from me…usually the next day or so. I am so glad I found your site! Please let me know when the new Secretariat picture will be released (the one on your home page). I LOVE that shot! Take care and have a great Christmas! Dawn

December 2008 Peter-
I did receive the photo, other goodies and your phone message. The photo looks great and I love the certificate. Thank you so much. I can’t wait for husband to open it on Christmas.
I’m sure Secretariat was even more magnificent in person….
Regards and Happy Holidays, Gina

Dec 23, 2007 I received my beautiful picture of Ruffian at the Acorn Stakes today and much to my surprise, I also received 3 DVD’s and the picture of Secretariat, the other with Ruffian and another small Ruffian picture. I am beside myself with happiness!
My wife actually intercepted them and framed all 3 big ones and surprised me about 30 minutes ago! (She bought frames and matting and put them together) so all 3 are hung in a place of honor in my bedroom. I took down a couple Van Gogh prints to make room for them, so you know how much I love them!
You went far beyond what was required and I want you to know it means a lot to me….You are a true man of character- At first I thought my wife just got “taken” on the internet but boy was I wrong. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and I sincerely wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Take care Mr. Fox, Jamey
June 16, 2007…ebay customer
The photos are absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for everything. (It was worth the wait.) I will update your feedback. Thanks again. Julie
Peter- Please accept my apology for not writing sooner to thank you for the DVDs you sent me, as well as the extra prints. I was so excited to watch all of them and of course, thoroughly enjoyed them! And the prints, well, they are just gorgeous and the three together will do much to improve any wall:) I really, really appreciate your generosity and kindness for sending the extra items. I will be sure to return to your site in the future! Best, MB 9/17/2007
Well I just received my package and I am blown away once again by you Peter. I was like a little kid at Christmas opening up the envelope. Your generosity is truly appreciated. When we finally get together coffee is on me. Thank very much, Al
From ebay – Aug 6, 2007 Peter, Thank you soooo much. Everything was very beautiful and I appreciate everything you did for me. Words can’t express how I feel. Thank you again. C N
Sept 17, 2007 Hello Peter, Just a quick note to let you know that I got the photo in great condition and to thank you for all of the extras you sent. The pictures are stunning. I look forward to putting a custom frame on the largest and getting all of them up on my walls. Thank you very much! Jennifer from Canada
Peter–Thanks for the great deal, especially the inclusion of the fabulous DVD. You’re such a pleasure do deal with, I tried to reflect that on feedback, but don’t have much space. I can’t tell you how happy I am with the transaction. I’ll keep watching your Secretariat stuff, hope we meet again soon! Be well, happy new year!! Brad
eBay customer June 20, 2007 Hi, Just a quick note to let you know that I received your package yesterday and it was like Christmas in June. Are you sure you sent me the correct package? Not only did I receive the beautiful Secretariat Collage I also received a photo of Barbaro, a gorgeous photo of Secretariat entering Belmont prior to running that race, and two CD’s one of Secretariat and one of Barbaro. If this was to really all come to me, you have become my “hero” seller. Please let me know. I would hate for some buyer out there to be waiting for this wonderful package and then only get the collage photo that I won at this auction. (Which I thought was a great win by itself.) Carol
7/27/2007 – I was the successful bidder on this photo in your last auction. wanted to let you know how beautiful it is and how much I’m enjoying it. the ebay comment section doesn’t leave much room for one to be verbose! I’m taking it w/me next week when i go to an event at Saratoga. all of the secretariat principals should be in attendance. thanks again. you are a very professional person. …ebay buyer bsx
Sept 18, 2007 Dear Peter – Your package arrived safely and I have already watched the Triple Crown and Ruffian anthology DVDs. I cried all the way through the Ruffian one. (I’m really such a sap I guess). But watching her run the way she did made what happen to her all the more painful to think about. She never looked like she was racing. She looked like a wild horse running freely – just completely loving to run. She was so magnificent and so beautiful. It is so unfair how her life ended.
When I first saw the headline yesterday “Rags to Riches Injured”, I nearly lost my breath with fear. I am so happy to know she will be okay. It would be nice to see her come back as the champion she is and race next year but I wouldn’t be disappointed if she didn’t and just got to run around and be a happy horse.
Thank you so much for everything you sent. The photos and Ruffian’s career DVD I will cherish forever. I feel so lucky to have them, to have such a keepsake and to be able to watch her run whenever I want to. I just honestly can’t think how to thank you enough. Most sincerely, Dani.
I received the photographs that I ordered today along with the two extra photo’s that you sent me of Secretariat and Ruffian. The beautiful color photo of the statuesque Ruffian cantering at the Acorn Stakes is breathtaking and the black and white photo from the Comely Stakes shows the look of power and beauty combined. The Secretariat photographs are amazing, the Bay Shore workout photo, WOW, and the color photo of the Belmont post parade is gorgeous, he looks so calm and relaxed. I will treasure these photos, they are a part of American history. I must tell you how much I appreciate your kindness and generosity in sending me these two extra photographs. I can’t wait to view the two DVD’S that you included, again, I thank you so much for that.
I wish you continued success and I will definitely remain a loyal customer.

Aloha Peter, I hope your holidays were happy, and your New Year is both productive and pleasant. I knew right away that my holidays were going to be just right when I received my pictures from you. The ones I won are every bit as beautiful as I have always expected from you; but the Ruffian Spinaway is the ultimate best. Thank you for being so generous! You don’t know how much I have wanted to place a bid on this particular photo but couldn’t afford it, so it is particularly welcome. I hope to be able to do business with you again soon. Meanwhile, have a great 2007. I will talk to you again. Sincerely, Maura 1/7/2007 ebay
The photograph of Spectacular Bid’s walkover in The Woodward still
astonishes me. He ran (in hand) a 2:02.2 mile and quarter without
competition to be eligible to collect the winner’s purse.
I have been fortunate to see many great thoroughbreds in action, but
being able to watch “The Bid” six times when he came out west to
start his four-year-old campaign was a treat. He is the best thoroughbred
I have ever seen in person, and probably the greatest never to win the triple crown.
Finally, the photograph of Forego is a keeper. I believe that was his final
victory of his career. He beat Dr. Patches by a neck in a $25K allowance
at Belmont to start his eight-year-old campaign. Mrs. Gerry did the right
thing and retired the old man after his tiring performance a month later in
the Suburban H.
He was legend through and through, and we will never see the likes of him
carrying the weight he was assigned. I hope at his retirement, Belmont’s
racing secretary gave him a break and allowed him just to carry his jock!
I just wanted to let you know that you have made a thoroughbred player and most importantly a collector very happy. I can’t put a price on these photos, and I won’t. These will remain protected in one of many binders of photos I already have.
When I have more time, I am likely going to order through you some individual photographs of Alydar. Most of the other sites usually couple Alydar with Affirmed. Take care! – Jim 3/23/2007
“I received the Foolish Pleasure photo today and am thrilled with it. Thanks again, it is always a pleasure to buy from you.” DN
Peter–Thanks for the great deal, especially the inclusion of the fabulous DVD. You’re such a pleasure do deal with, I tried to reflect that on feedback, but don’t have much space. I can’t tell you how happy I am with the transaction. I’ll keep watching your Secretariat stuff, hope we meet again soon! Be well, happy new year!! Brad 1/3/2007
Peter, I received package on Saturday ,got to look at it Sunday and it was like an early Christmas gift. you went over and beyond and I thank you very much for the extra photos and DVDs. You are a class act and a credit to the horse racing field. thanks again BOB L. 12/17/2006.
I received the package today!
Thank you very much for all the extra goodies you put in there, it is much appreciated. Can’t wait to see his reaction. I will definitely keep you in mind for more gifts!! All the best, RC
I received the Left Bank saddle cloth today. I am exceptionally pleased with the quality of the cloth. I had a frame ready for it when it arrived so now it is ready to be displayed in my house. Thanks for the excellent photos, they will be the perfect accompaniment for the saddle cloth. I was fortunate enough to see Left Bank race at Saratoga… the most thrilling being his victory in the Whitney handicap. Once again thanks for the high quality saddle cloth of one of my favorite horses. If you need anything for the Jana Domino Foundation feel free to give me a call. Sincerely, J M
I don’t know if I ever told you that I was a freelance court reporter, but I am and I spend tons of time sitting at my desk at home editing transcripts and perched on top of said desk is that lovely, lovely Ruffian photo that you went to such great pains to procure for me. I feel compelled to thank you just one more time for doing so. It is the absolute jewel of my collection. Hope things are going well! KL
Hello Peter My regrets in getting this note of thanks off to you ? it?s been a hectic week.
To say I?m extremely impressed and thankful for all that you are offering is an understatement. I truly do appreciate it! I was, and will always remain, a big fan of The Bid if not even more since his passing. I?ve been to Milfer Farms in Unadilla, NY. Seeing the other greats on video (I?ve never seen footage of Dr. Fager actually putting in those brilliant runs as he did) will be an exceptional treat.
I?d be very interesting in learning more about the past video magazine effort in general. One would assume that it was well ahead of its time in concept and with the VHS still not hitting its full stride I can only imagine the idea was great but the economics challenged. Those who enjoy TB racing – especially seeing the gods of the track who have been few and far between since the early 1980?s ? I?d think would love to see an offering like this today on DVD. Especially when it features those hard to find, but Hall of Fame heavyweights like Big Red and Bid. This DVD will certainly make for a wonderful holiday item. My thanks again and happy holidays to you and yours as well. PM
April 17, 2007 Hi Peter, I wanted to let you know that the Ruffian photos & DVD arrived today. Thank you, the 2 photos will make a lovely grouping and the DVD is totally awesome. I never met Ruffian, but I did follow her career. To have seen her, is to never forget her. Thank you again. Susi
I know it is late on both coasts, but I got home a couple of hours
ago from a business trip and I am looking at my mail. Thank you
very much for everything. I’ll sample the DVD’s later, but the photographs are spectacular.
Sorry it has taken me so long to write. Guess I have just been wrapped up in the rush of the holidays. Additionally, my husband and I are packing for our move to Lynchburg, VA.
In any case, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful auction items (Secretariat, Forego, and Alydar and Affirmed). I absolutely love them! The quality surpasses expectations! And an extra special thanks for including the two extra photos. They are just fantastic! What a treat it is doing business with you! I have only ever heard good things about you (you have quite an excellent reputation on eBay, it seems), and I know from previously items I have purchased from you since I started bidding on eBay in June that you are a top-class seller. It is such a comfort to bid on items when you know you can trust the seller. Thanks for being such a sterling example for others.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy new year! Tina
Dear Pete, I received THE PHOTO last night….and ran out to buy frames! Thank you so much for your generosity and great service. I will continue to review your site for future purchases as well as refer you to other horse enthusiasts. PK 1/4/2007
The photo arrived today and it is worth waiting for. It is more gorgeous than I could have imagined. Thank you very much for such safe and careful packing. Can’t wait to look at the DVD. I have your website marked as one where I can get special horse photographs. Thanks again. Judy
