Fans of Terlingua will enjoy the Secretariat's Legacy 2023 calendar, which honors the great Secretariat mare who set six stakes records on the racetrack and then produced Storm Cat, one of the greatest stallions of all time.

It is the sixth annual fundraising calendar honoring Secretariat and his descendants. The first five calendars in the series, which started with the Living Legends theme honoring the remaining Secretariats, have raised $28,000 for equine charities over the years.

“I am very grateful to all the racing fans – especially Secretariat fans – who have supported both the Living Legends calendar series and the newer Secretariat's Legacy series, which began last year when honoring Weekend Surprise,” said writer/photographer Patricia McQueen, whose creative project is part of her research work on Secretariat as a sire. Her book Secretariat's Legacy will be published in early 2023.

The 2023 calendar is all about Terlingua, and her important descendants included in the calendar are:
 Storm Cat, her G1-winning son who became a legendary sire
 Chapel Of Dreams, her graded stakes-winning daughter
 Giant's Causeway, Storm Cat's champion son who also became a superior sire
• Freud, Giant's Causeway's full brother who has been a perennial New York leading sire
• Bricks And Mortar, the 2019 Horse of the Year son of Giant's Causeway
• Gun Runner, the 2017 Horse of the Year out of a Giant's Causeway mare
• Wise Dan, the two-time Horse of the Year who is a great-grandson of Storm Cat and also a grandson of the Secretariat mare Askmysecretary
 American Pharoah, the 2015 Triple Crown winner who is a great-grandson of Storm Cat
• Pink Lloyd, another great-grandson of Storm Cat, who earned eight Sovereign Awards in Canada
• Into Mischief, the latest super-sire from Storm Cat's sire line

As with previous calendars, the Tony Leonard Collection continues to generously support the series with a beautiful photo of Secretariat and Ron Turcotte before the Belmont Stakes. Mr. Turcotte has generously agreed to autograph a limited number of calendars to help raise even more funds.

All profits from the sale of the calendar are allocated to three worthy organizations: Bright Futures Farm and Canada's LongRun Thoroughbred Retirement Society, both accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance; and Victory Alliance Ranch, an equine rescue and sanctuary supporting veterans and special needs children.

Calendars are available for $25 each at Free shipping within the US is included.
