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.

I remember watching him win the Derby, for the first time in my life my father asked me...if I wanted to watch the Preakness and the Belmont with him too...we did. He asked me after the Derby who to watch..
(My opinion!!!) it was then I told him Secretariat for the crown this year...I could tell by his eye when he looked at the camera...he loved it! He wasn't afraid...he knew and he told me he knew, it was all his that year. I consider him the greatest racehorse that ever graced a track not only because of the crown....but because of HOW he showed us it belonged to him...
The anniversary of his passing has recently come and gone and it hurts my heart just as much on this day as it did on the day he was laid to rest. He was always the greatest after the crown, at least in my heart...and I was one of the true believers that Man O' War held that righteous title..but on one day on May 9 of 1973..the Lord graced my heart and soul to a colt named Secretariat and forever there it shall remain..Love you Big Red...

Remembering Secretariat who passed away 29 years ago on October 4, 1989. The greatest thoroughbred race horse of all time. He was an athlete, but he was also intelligent and unmistakably he was aware of his surroundings. His greatness was not just defined by 'what' he did, but also by 'how' he did it. The sum of all these things is what sets Secretariat apart from all the rest.
I meant to submit this post on October 4th to commemorate his passing, but time got away from me. I have been caring for a family member who had surgery in late September. This fact also kept me from attending the Secretariat Festival. I hope everyone had a great time there this past weekend. A big thank you to the Chenery family members and to for making it happen every year.

Tim Dean, I forgot to mention - I have one of Secretariat's shoes and also a lock of his mane. Bobby Anderson gave them to me when I was a regular visitor to the farm.
Sandy Sandy wrote on October 12, 2018 at 1:37 am:
Hello Tim Dean, I appreciate your love and devotion to Secretariat but I have to correct you - I am the biggest Secretariat fan who ever lived. I went to visit him several times a week until his death in 1989 and I still cry when I think of him. Tell ya what - we will both claim the title of "biggest fan". He sure was something, wasn't he? There will never be another like him. Ever.

Preakness was superb
Kentucky was sublim
Belmont was surrealist
The weakness of mister Secretariat ? Preakness.
Until now it is 45 years for standing-up records and any horse is able do that . Secretariat is the Louis Cyr of horserace .
