Secretariat - I saw him run all three legs of the Triple Crown and he had Greatness in him. Not just because of his numbers but because he was full of spirit, perosnality and confidence. I have a picture of him in my office and for over 40 years he has inspired me to be my best.
California Chrome is and will remain the "People's Horse" because he had a humble beginning and he proved he is a winner. The truth is they do need to change the Triple Crown contest because breeding has changed and most horses are bred for speed making it difficult for them to have distance when theya re still young - remember 3 year olds are not fully grown horses - so to keep it fair there needs to be more time between the races - not a chnage to who can race but a change to allow ALL to be rested - period.
