We are grateful to the late Bill Nack, an integral member of the Secretariat team, for his brilliant writing and encyclopedic knowledge of racing. His definitive history of Secretariat displayed his masterful storytelling skills and inspired generations of horse lovers. We will miss his humor, his enthusiasm, and his generosity toward fans. Together with Bill’s wife Carolyne, the Secretariat Foundation offers the following suggestions for anyone who wishes to remember Bill in their giving.
