If for the races the most spectacular and long-lasting times do not make any difference , so , what are we basing ourselves on ? On the number of patatoes that a horse can pound with his hooves in a restaurant ?
I live near Joliette ( The native`s town of Lucien Laurin ) and I know that 3 + 3 = 6...I learned it at school like everybody .
I escaped from the asylum but with this truth you can not force me to go back !!

Remembering Derby Champion Barbaro who passed away 12 years ago today in 2007! Sadly we never had the opportunity to witness the full potential of your greatness. It would have been glorious!

Revel in the eternal peace and tranquility of running wild and free.

Remembering your date of birth Penny, January 27, 1922. Happy birthday to you! We miss you. If you would, stare those 2 thoroughbreds of yours in the eye and reassure them we miss them too!

Tim Dean....
So sad to hear belatedly about the passing of Secretariat's Fire. I have marked the date on last year's Living Legends calendar.
I wish you would share the photo you described with the site so that it may be posted here if possible

The light she emanated was her way of saying goodbye to all and telling her father that she was coming to meet him...

Wanted to wish Miss Penny a very happy birthday!! You are greatly missed, but we ALL know you're in a much better place, watching Red, Riva and the rest of the horses in your family's stable, frolicing in the Golden pastures of Heaven! You and your beloved Daddy are enjoying all that is! We love you Miss Penny, and again, Happy Birthday!

I wanted to stop by and report to
ALL of the "Big Red" Secretariat fan's of a sad day that occurred on November 30, 2018...The Secretariat mare named SECRETARIAT'S FIRE past-a-way at her home farm in Florida, she was 28 year's old...Secretariat's Fire was Sired by the GREAT SUPERHORSE Secretariat and out of the Dam Prospector's Fire by Mr. Prospector. Secretariat 's Fire was foaled on February 13th, 1990...The owner of Secretariat's Fire sent me a photo of Secretariat's Fire about 5 minutes before she passed away...In the photo there's a GLOW OF LIGHT radiating off the face of Secretariat Fire...Secretariat's Fire is now in heaven with her Sire Big Red Secretariat and ALL of the other SECRETARIAT Progeny (Off Spring)!!! Secretariat's Fire was a very Sweet lovable horse...I love her and ALL of the other SECRETARIAT Progeny off spring...I want to say hello to, Ronnie Turcotte, Kate and John Tweedy and to Leeanne Ladin-Meadow's...

With his blue and white mask, Secretariat is perfect for kids! This color is too the color of royalty and...kings. Secretariat is the king of kings but the 1999 vote said it is wrong...The vote said exactely that: He is the better of racing history but not of the century. The better of all school but not the better of his class ?.....really ??
I go to asylum, I am the problem !!!

Sure wish I could be at Santa Anita today to see the VP award go to the connections of WINX!
Some descriptions off an Australian hundreds have lined up to have posters signed...
I actually have a commemorative postcard that I got directly from Australia ...wish they sold some things here...the postage from Australia is very expensive...but the postcard plus postcard was very affordable!
To me, Winx is the female version of Secretariat...a bright light in the world!

I Want to send a big HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019 to the "Big Red" Secretariat team at, Ronnie Turcotte, John Tweedy and his sister Kate and to Leeanne Ladin-Meadow's at The Meadow in Doswell, Va...Also, Happy New Year to ALL of the "Big Red" Secretariat fan's around the Globe.
Alain Alain wrote on December 25, 2018 at 4:52 pm:
Sham would still have the record of Kentucky (About +/- 1:59:90 ) if we exclude Secretariat. It means that if this theoric record who stands for 45 years, so ,imagine 1:59:40 ? ( !! ) The record of Secretariat will be stand probably forever like Belmont. When a record still stand after 35 or 40 years it means it is probably and strongly in the pocket !! Only Preakness is ``low`` because the run is shorter and horses less tired. Horses have a chance for this run, maybe....

First, I want to tell , Ronnie Turcotte, Kate Chenery Tweedy, Leeanne Ladin-Meadow's, John Tweedy all Merry Christmas...Also a Merry Christmas to my Secretariat aka "Big Red" !!! You know, Secretariat fan's I have watched other Thoroughbred horse races from American pharoah, Justify, Kelso, Round Table, AP Indy, Storm Cat, Risen Star, General Assembly, Native Diver, Native Dancer Alydar , Affirmed and many others and None come close to Secretariat...I will say, Secretariat's progeny such as Risen Star, Lady's Secret aka "The Iron lady" and General Assembly all were Good Champion's...Risen Star won the Preakness & Belmont and should have been a Triple Crown Champion...Lady's Secret Won the 1986 Breeders Cup Distaff...General Assembly Won the Travers and other races as well...Risen Star & Lady's Secret also Won Other races I just named a few...Also, Fan's keep in mind, this coming March 30TH is SECRETARIAT'S BIRTHDAY...

Just listen...the 'thrill' is still in the calls!
Remembering the "Voice" of the 1973 Triple Crown races, Chic Anderson, on his day of birth, December 17, in the year 1931.
Alain Alain wrote on December 11, 2018 at 5:07 am:
Secretariat won the Triple Crown with these results : 2 1/2 + 2 1/2 + 31 lenghts . In all it is 36 lenghts BUT Sham distorted the results because Sham had about 8 lenghts in advance on the group of other horses SO the 2 1/2 of Secretariat is stronger than it appear !! In realty Secretariat won in these 3 races by about 50 lenghts if we exclude Sham !!!!
Sham was FANTASTIC ( It must be constantly clarified ! ) BUT was extremely unlucky to appear at the same time than Secretariat = Demonstration made !!
