I'm a little late to this but I had learned about the Secretariat fan club After I had posted a memory on Facebook in honor of Secretariat's 50th birthday.

When I was a kid, Secretariat was at Hialeah racetrack in 1972 and myself and two of my friends were at the barns there and as luck would have it, we began talking to a man who it turned out, was Secretariat's groomer and he was being walked at the time. The man was so nice and asked if I wanted to mount. Loving horses as much as I do I said sure! Not really understanding the significance. It was just happenstance. It wasn't planned, but it was something that I've never forgotten and a memory that I have always cherished.

The date of the passing for the 'Voice' of the 1973 Triple Crown races is tomorrow. Chic Anderson left us way too soon on March 24, 1979. He was only 47 years old!

Rest In Eternal Peace Chic

So sorry that the birthday celebration for Secretariat had to be cancelled this month. The 50th year anniversary of Secretariat's birth is only going to come around this one time. Who could have ever imagined 50 years ago that the world would be in such a mess?!? We all have a lot on our minds right now, but thoughts and memories of Secretariat persist. The faithful will never forget!
Stay safe everyone!
I wanted to stop by and deliver some sad news to ALL of the Secretariat fan's and to the racing community in general...A.P. INDY a racing legend and leading Sire past-a-way on February 21st 2020 at his long time home of Lane's End farm in Kentucky , he was 31 years old...A.P. Indy was by Seattle Slew out of Weekend Surprise by SECRETARIAT...The dam (Mother) of A.P. Indy was Weekend Surprise , and Weekend Surprises sire was SECRETARIAT...A.P. Indy won many of his races one of which was the Belmont Stakes...I just found out about A.P. Indy's passing and I on a personal note and as a historian on my Secretariat want to send my personal condolences of heartfelt sadness to The Lane's End Farm the long time home of A.P. Indy...Hello to, Ron Turcotte and to John & Kate Tweedy...
Hey, all you other Secretariat fan's out there who are "Big Red" die hard fans, I wanted to come onto the # 1 website for Thoroughbred horseracing and Secretariat's official website and let you know, another foal of Secretariat has been discovered...A beautiful chestnut daughter (mare) of Secretariat was discovered and her name is "Trusted Company"...She is 30 years old...Trusted Company was born on Valentine's Day in 1989...Personally, I am so glad that there are some of the Secretariat son's and daughter's left...Big Red's Progeny is still out there and thats a blessing to me...I want to say hello to and to Ronnie Turcotte and Kate & John...
Well, I am back , the Secretariat # 1 fan and historian...I was just thinking about Secretariat and his GREAT LEGACY...And , you know, after ALL THESE YEARS, WE ARE STILL talking about Secretariat aka "Big Red" and rightfully so...Fan's DON'T FORGET the Secretariat birthday celebration at the Meadow stable in Doswell, Virginia in the month of March..
Secretariat was born on March 30TH, 1970 at 12:10 am in Doswell, Virginia...Also, I want to thank for the great job they've done to preserve the legacy and memory and great career of The GREATEST RACEHORSE THAT'S EVER LIVED BAR NONE...Even the late Secretariat trainer said , Secretariat is the GREATEST RACEHORSE he'd ever trained bar none, his name was Lucien Laurin...I want to ask you fan's a trivia question, what was Secretariat's very first jockey's name ? I know you'll Google it and find the many foals did Secretariat sire ? What was Secretariat's very first foal's name and where was he born ? These are baby trivia questions...I want to say hi to my friends at , Ronnie Turcotte and to Kate & John Tweedy...

I have been a big racing fan all my life. Been to many Kentucky Derby's with my good friend Dallas Stewart. As a New Orleans Mounted Police Officer for many years, I was lucky too have one of Secretariat's grandsons as a police mount. He was Satan's War, bred in Louisiana and won several allowance races in Louisiana and Arkansas. In 2003 I met Tony Leonard at the Kentucky Horse Park. During that time we went too the Claiborne Farm, got to meet the Hancock Family. The following year Tony and his wife came to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. He gave me his entire collection of Secretariat photographs. What great memories.

Remembering one of Secretariat's Team Members today...the "Groom" Charlie Davis. Charles passed two years ago today in 2018. He had just turned 78 years old a few days earlier.

The faithful will never forget!

RIP Charlie

Yesterday 'the Groom' Charlie Davis would have turned 80 years old. He was born in 1940.

Tomorrow 'the Storyteller' Bill Nack would have turned 79 years old. He was born in 1941.

The 'Devine Wonder' Secretariat brought these 2 men together, and neither of their lives would ever be the same.

May all 3 of these souls Rest In Peace.

Just got my long-awaited calendar yesterday and I have to say, I was well worth the wait! The inserts...a beautiful color phot as well as a stunning post-size picture with stats on the back were a pleasant surprise.
When I opened the calendar I got sort of teary-eyed as I leaned on the spirit of Secretariat as my mother failed in health. It's only a few days away from the 4th anniversary of her death and the link between Secretariat and that time is still strong for me. When I wept at his grave the fall after she passed, I wept for Secretariat and my mother...and it seems I will continue to do so...

2006 Kentucky Derby Champion Barbaro passed away 13 years ago today. He captivated the nation, but sadly his seemingly limitless potential was never realized do to injury.
Never to be forgotten, RIP Barbaro
