That intestinal disorder plaqued Secretariat from a couple days before his Woodward loss until just before that workout!
What I'd do to see Big Red handle a little bit different. Especially with those virus/abscess that plague him in the 3 W....
Two awesome triple crown winners ... I guess that :57 signaled his readiness, because his Marlboro Cup performance was spectacular!
