The statue sits in the middle of a traffic circle -- lots of great angles for taking pictures.

Secretariat Statue

A major symbol of horse racing, this 3,800-pound statue was installed October 14, 2019, at Alexandria Drive and Old Frankfort Pike in Lexington. The larger-than-life statue is 21 feet from hoof to hoof and more than 11 feet tall. Washington sculptor Jocelyn Russell made the sculpture in Oklahoma, and it was transported to Lexington in early October. It took nearly 16 months to complete.
