In 1974, I began my freshman year at Randolph-Macon College, just a few miles south of The Meadow. More than once I drove out Rt. 30 past the farm and dreamed of touching Secretariat. I would have given anything to just inhale his breath and have him inhale mine. My goodness, what a horse! I was at a race party with my college cronies when Secretariat ran The Belmont. Watching the race on TV, I was afraid he might fade in such a long race, having taken such an early lead. Most of my friends (not being horse people) had no clue as to why I was so worried. I'll never forget feeling the hair raising on my arms as I saw him begin to pull away from Sham and was overwhelmed with love & admiration as Secretariat turned on this amazing burst of power and speed as the distance he took in the lead became increasing larger. As Secretariat crossed the finish, I had tears streaming down my cheeks, resulting from the awe and inspiration I gained from this horse's incredible will and amazing physical prowess which allowed him to win by some incredible distance of 31 lengths. Wow, what a horse! What an experience to have been able to witness a horse like Secretariat in my lifetime. Thank you for breeding this incredible horse and sharing his talent with the rest of the world.
