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!

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 10:07 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 !!

The spécialists who think that Man O`War is better than Secretariat are not in the right place in their brain because it is mathematic and the mathematics side must ALWAYS be in the mode ENTER.
The faster in not the better ? YOU HAVE A PROBLEM !!

Just voted for the Vox Populi Award, realized I had not been at this site for a while, then read of Penny's Virginia interment.

Dear Penny,
I miss you. You gave so much to this world of thoroughbreds that so many of us breathe on a daily basis. What I miss the most is your spunk and spirit.
Thinking of you-and smiling.
