Just sitting here late at night after a day contemplating everything Secretariat on this his Birthday. Seems so long ago but the feelings and memories are still as fresh as ever. I came across a Beautiful slideshow in honour of Secretariats Birthday on the Blood-Horse website. I highly recommend it to all who love Big Red it has 111 pictures in a slide format. Enjoy.

SECRETARIAT was born on March 30th, 1970 at 12:10 AM...His sire Bold Ruler and his Dam Somethingroyal gave America 🇺🇸 the GREATEST racehorse of ALL TIME BAR NONE!!! Secretariat's jockey Ron Turcotte, his trainer Lucien Laurin, his groom Eddie Sweat, his exercise riders Jim Gaffney and Charlie Davis ALL Stated that SECRETARIAT was & is the GREATEST Thoroughbred race horse of ALL TIME and this still holds True Today!!! SECRETARIAT is the TRUE STANDARD OF THE AMERICAN TRIPLE CROWN!!! No racehorse now or back then was able to compete with or try to match what Big Red had accomplished...Its been over 50 years and SECRETARIAT Still holds the RECORDS FOR ALL 3 TRIPLE CROWN RACES...He still holds the record for the Marlboro Cup race...Seth Hancock said it best, when he said, " I've seen ALOT of good racehorses but NONE LIKE SECRETARIAT!!!

The 'trackside Voice' Chic Anderson passed away 42 years ago yesterday in 1979. Your calls still define Secretariat's thrilling 1973 Triple Crown Campaign.

RIP Chic

happy birthyear Sec.... 50 yrs old Jan 1, 2020. Possibly the best of the best, even beyond the great Mano and Citation. Your Z scores were off the charts, 3rd, even 4th standard deviations for the Belmont and Marlboro, proving the Belmont was no fluke, no random event. The triples were the best ever. You will be in the books for centuries to come. One in a million, X-factor superheart... read Marianna Haun's work.

First time being on this site for the champion thoroughbred racehorse Secretariat and wow what information is available to the public!

Nicely put in each page along with crucial information historians or even handicappers like myself who likes the past performances for his entire career!

5/5 stars for sure!

Over the brain row
Somewhere over the brain row , way up hi !
There`s a band that I heard of once in a lol a deny .
Somewhere over the brain row , skies are blue ( Secretariat ) And the dreams that you dare to dream , realy do come true .

Only the potential column of my estimate cannot be reconfigured . On the other hand , for the classical column it is possible . It is true that Secretariat ran only one year and it could be argued that it is not enough but it is the same for Man O`War ! To demote Secretariat is to demote Man O`War too and Secretariat will have to stay BEFORE Man O`War . These 4 horses according to my columns are the ones that make a general consensus then the simplest is to leave this column as such = What needs to be proved .

Have received my 2021 Secretariat calendars,and they are fantastic! Thank you for publishing them - I gave one as a gift to another Secretariat fan. Although I have the other 2 still hanging, I will treasure this one each day.

Fot Man O`War , Citation , Black Caviar and other star horses we use walls to hang their performances but for Secretariat and Kelso we used something stronger to hang : TIME
Not only is it more solid but this wall follows us like a dog !
As Secretariat and Kelso would say : Hihihihihihi....larant !!
Alain Valade Alain Valade wrote on January 7, 2021 at 7:48 am:
It is striking that it is women who have the best judgment .The two bosses of the two greatest horses ( Secretariat and Kelso )were women and Linda Kennedy-book(Kelso , the horse of gold ) perfectly captures Kelso`s classic side and greatness . . .and many people who call themselves dare to say that she exaggerates !! Are the numbers there or not ? As well as the weapon facts ? Classically Kelso has no equal . . .These two horses ( Secretariat and Kelso ) keep me awake ! Because I am perfectly aware of the greatness of the things they have done , contrary to pseudo-specialists who say they know all about it .
