Kudos to the Secretariat team in adding esteemed turf writer Steve Haskin to your stable! He has written such fabulous pieces about Big Red, and all of his numerous fans will follow his columns avidly. Thank you, and I look forward to visiting your site often.

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
