One of the greats. Probably the number one stud producing more top champions then any other stud.

  • buckpasser · AmbitiousD, Rafi, Kaitline and anyone else who might be interested. There are two books on ebay that are very cheap and quite good. Before The Bugle by Jennings is a book about the Hancocks and Claiborne $8.00 in a nice edition. Golden Goose by Earl Ruby is about the jockey Roscoe Goose who rode the long shot Donerail to victory in the Derby. Donerail was gelding sired by McGee who also sired the great Exterminator. A very good book about a forgotten old timer for $10. · 139 days ago ·

  • airedale2008 · As an admirer of Secretariat's Belmont, Kaitline, you should read Secretariat's Meadow-The Land-The Family-The Legend, written by Penny Chenery's daughter Kate Chenery Tweedy. It tells the story from the Chenery family perspective, and is chock full of pictures from Penny's private collection that you won't see in another book. Kate also wrote Riva Ridge Penny's First Champion about the too often forgotten horse who came close to winning the Triple Crown himself. Penny's brother and sister wanted to sell Meadow Stud and put the money into the stock market. Riva won enough stakes money to change their minds, and the next year the chestnut colt made history. I was lucky to attend Secretariat's birthday celebration and 40th anniversary of his Triple Crown in March at Meadow Farm. These books are now signed by Penny, Ron Turcotte, exercise rider Charlie Davis, Kate, co-author Leeanne Ladin, Riva's exercise rider Wayne Mount and publisher Wayne Dementi. Wayne told me that he only printed 1,000 of the Riva Ridge book. I took a picture of Wayne Mount holding Riva's exercise saddle and beside him Secretariat's exercise saddle being held by the son of Meredith Bailes, who first broke Big Red. A fun day for 1200 racing fans. You would have enjoyed it. · 129 days ago ·

  • tmallios1 · Absolutely agree with all the comments. In regards to his incredible success as a sire. When i was in the buisiness,i was told that the important feature was the throat. If a horse could not get normal air flow,all the rest was irrelevant.The vet we used also worked on Indy as well as many other All time greats. His knickname for him was affectionately "The Grand Canyon" . A major reason for his Stamina prodgeny. On the race track , at his very best. Indy was incomparable with his contemporaries. He truly was one of the All Time greats. · 133 days ago ·

  • Buckpasser · You are correct Airedale because I remember several articles in Sports Illustrated, Thoroughbred Record and DRF that stated perhaps it was getting too easy to win the TC and that it needed changes to toughen the criteria for winning.

  • UnionRagsRules · Let me tell you how SCARY it is to watch an unbalanced horse run barrels. Some run in, drop their front end, and sling their hind end around. Most horses that do this in anything but perfect ground will fall. And many futurity horses scare me. Those poor four year olds, sent out there to go that fast around the barrels... I don't futurity mine. Infact my horses aren't even close to finished until about 8. I made an exception for my Speedy LeBron, though, as he was ready to go full force by 6. But he still isn't seasoned enough at 8. · 207 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · By the way there is an interesting Steven Crist blog on the Racing Form site about how the top 3 year old horses should be facing older horse at this time of the year instead of running in restricted races like the Penn Derby, Cotillion, Indiana Derby etc. He makes a good point in my opinion. All the slot funded rich races for 3 year olds in the fall have contributed to the decline of many of the old traditional races in New York. It is great that the two top 3 year olds are running in the Gold Cup and Princess of Sylmar is in the Beldame. · 208 days ago ·
