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!

Bill Nack, born in 1941, would have been 80 years old today.

His words inspired us.

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 !!

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 .
I want to say a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021 to the entire team, Ron Turcotte and to my friend John Tweedy, who's Penny Chenery son, and Kate Tweedy John's sister...And of course, SECRETARIAT!!!

How to negociate your own conscience
I saw on a website that they compared 10 races between Secretariat and Man O`War and Secretariat invariably won ! Here is what I think : I saw on another website an expert who said that Secretariat seemed immortal when you analyse his races but that he stumbled when it came to his record . . . .so , if I understand correctly ,we just have to make these two horses equal even if it is not true because Secretariat is superior but by making them equal it becomes obvious that it`s the record that will decide !! Very beautiful demonstration of negotiation of his own conscience . . .and this expert is convinced of what he says . . . .the Earth is still flat , it seems .

A computer-man argues against a human-woman .He presents her with a superb file of his horse ( 25-0-0 = Black Caviar ) while blowing his suspenders . The human-woman says to him that mathematically I must admit that your numbers make me fall on the ground but she adds this by presenting her hoese`s record ( 16-3-1 = Secretariat ) which hits less imagination with less victories but she tells him that it is necessary to look at the good numbers namely the records suspended in time or even in eternity .Now what do you have to add with your beautiful card that you hang behind your desk to try to dazzle people ?
Alain Valade Alain Valade wrote on January 5, 2021 at 9:13 am:
It is UNUSUAL to right numbers as a common computer can do if they are misinterpreted as many analysts do . Citation was a great racehorse but he was above all a `` business`` horse since he was reliable to bet on . Analysts mix this thing up with confirmed and unreachable records so they have a problem of evaluation and prioritization .To evaluate well it is necessary to infer as well as to deduce and M.Penny induced with her Secretariat since she thought that with the union of a horse that had a great endurance with another with a pedigree of speed it could give a monster . . . and during this time the men continued to simply deduce with their usual reasoning based only on deduction .

What do I mean by reconfiguration ? It is like when an atom changes its orbit around the nucleus , we do not see it change its position ,all we see is the flash it makes and then we see its change of position .
Alain Valade Alain Valade wrote on January 5, 2021 at 7:32 am:
What do I hear about the difference between potentiel and classic ?
Classic : Time must play and Kelso has 8 years of full service . Constant records . Powerful records . This horse is so classic that he shits marble !
Potential : Bursting demonstrations of powerful shots that last a very long time and this is even truer after some 47 years !! Did not M.Hanford who was Kelso`s trainer , say that Secretariat was the greatest horse he ever saw ? Because he understood ( Smart move on his part ) that the column of potential had just been shaken and reconfigured .
Alain Valade Alain Valade wrote on January 4, 2021 at 7:39 am:
Who`s the bigger one between Kelso and Secretariat ? It`s like asking which brain hemisphere is bigger than the other! The two are different but complementary . This is why you need two visions and therefore two columns of analysis . Each on these two champions leads in their own column and to average out to have only one champion does not quite to justice .
Alain Valade Alain Valade wrote on January 4, 2021 at 6:13 am:
Until 1973, Kelso was the greatest horse classically and potentially then what he is doing in fourth place among the horses of the century ?
God only knows . . . .
The Devil suspects it . . . .
and the voters ignore it .
Alain Valade Alain Valade wrote on January 4, 2021 at 5:52 am:
The Triple Crown of 1973 was 3 consecutive irregularities . 1- Slow and inexorable rise in Kentucky . 2- Electrifying comeback in Preakness . 3-Mechanical distance in Belmont .
This is what dethroned Kelso for potential .
