The $25 calendar features 20 images and celebrates the 40th anniversary of Secretariat's Triple Crown win in 1973.

The Lexington Herald-Leader ( reported that Leonard's 500,000 images and negatives were purchased just before his death in 2012.

Leonard photographed horses for nearly 50 years. He died at the age of 89 in a Lexington nursing home.
