I am back after watching the 146th Running of The Kentucky Derby on NBC TV on September 5th...I must say, I was really disappointed that TIZ THE LAW didn't win, instead Authentic won...I do feel though, that TIZ THE LAW was the better competitor...I also think , TIZ THE LAW could have Won if he would have felt like running...That's one thing SECRETARIAT LOVE TO DO IS RUN & EAT..."BIG RED" Was a ham, HE KNEW HE WAS THE WORLD CHAMPION , HE KNEW HE WAS THE (BEST) and even though SECRETARIAT was a gentle, poised demeanor Champion HE COULD let everyone know, HE was The Man if HE WANTED TO...SECRETARIAT BROKE ALL 3 TRIPLE CROWN RECORDS, WHICH STILL STAND TODAY !!! Racehorses has been TRYING TO tie or break SECRETARIAT'S Track Record's since 1973 and CAN (NOT) DO IT...Over a million & a half horses have come of age to race and NONE OF THEM Can even come close to SECRETARIAT'S TRACK RECORD'S in any of the Triple Crown races, and other races as well...SECRETARIAT IS IMMORTAL, A RACING LEGEND, A ICON IN WORLD HISTORY THAT (WILL) LIVE ON FOR (ALL ETERNITY)!!! And HE Will ALWAYS BE EDGED IN MY MEMORY AND THOUGHTS (FOREVER) !!! I LOVE YOU "BIG RED"...I also want to SAY A BIG HELLO to my friends at Secretariat.com and Ronnie Turcotte, The World's BEST JOCKEY, and John and Kate Tweedy and to Sarah, John & Kate's sister.

Remembering the 'Groom' Eddie Sweat on his birthday. Mr. Sweat was born on this date (August 29) in 1939.
Turf writer Steve Haskin recently wrote a beautiful piece about the 'Groom' and it is posted here on Secretariat.com for all to read.

Greatest Horse their ever was or will be. This beautiful horse taught me so much more than him being a winner. He has taught me that true love, caring and hard work does pay off. He will forever be an amazing legacy to so many. Thank you Big Red for showing the world what love and determination can look like if you work hard and love what you are doing!! You will forever be the greatest race horse that has ever lived!!

Happy Belated Birthday Ron, good health to you.

Lived in Toronto in my youth and was thrilled to be at Woodbine to see Big Red run, wish I kept the ticket.
I do have the famous stretch run photo signed by yourself & Penny hanging in the man den. Great memories.

Happy belated birthday, Ron.

I was 12 and living in NYC when that magnificent horse flew you across the finish line at Belmont. My dad turned to my brother and me and said, "We will never see anything like this again."

I salute you and the day that you had Kennedy Airport worried about an equine collision.

With great affection and respect,

Ana Keveney

We enjoy watching Secretariat repeatedly, as do our Grandchildren, we travel with our video and watch it when we camp! Its a favorite for all of us.. What a opportunity for you it must of been bringing Big Red across that winning line each time, we feel just a bit of excitement ourselves just watching. We pray you have many blessed years in which you can replay your great memories with Big Red and all your endevours .. GodBless
