The vote of 1999 said that Man O`War is the better ? This erroneous vote will be corrected by the judge who is never wrong : History ...because history can not eliminate indisputable facts that cling in time while others have fallen.....The TIME that all fear as in this egyptian proverb : The Universe fears time but Time fears pyramids ( Records ).

Remembering one of the 'Team' today, Charlie Davis. He was born on this day in 1940. In 5 days it will be the 1st anniversary of Charlie's passing on February 7, 2018. We all miss you Charlie.

I'm also remembering the 'Storyteller' Bill Nack who's birthday is in 2 days. This dear friend to Secretariat and to all of his connections was born on February 4, 1941. Happy Birthday Bill. Losing you last year was a real shock! Like Charlie, we all really miss you Bill.

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...

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.

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!
