What the Nation is saying about Jose Santos, Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Affirmed - September 16th...

Seattle Slew is was the best horse I have been fortunate enough to see.
I believe Slew was as good as any of them.
Happy to say I was there 33 years ago. Slew was awesome, Affirmed never had a chance.
