I'm shocked. Completely and utterly shocked. I get on bloodhorse today after a long day of working and see "I'll Have Another out of Belmont, Retired" at first I thought it was a joke. I read the article and nearly cried. I was so excited, I have been counting down the days. I am just shocked. I am glad that they are not taking any chances with him, but still its hard to believe what just happened.
In my opinion yes. Man O' War, Kelso, Phar Lap and all those you named are amazing, now doubt. But I believe Secretariat just reigns supreme.
Greatest Racehorse of all time. Period.
I love this horse. I LOVE LOVE LOVE him. I hope they keep him racing, he has potential! He raced real well in his first start, really well. He is officially one of my babies, I call him! :D
I am liking this horse. What he did today at Parx was unbelievable! I can't beleive he lasted so long infront! Link to race on Thoroughbred Times here: http://www.thoroughbredtimes.com/racing/video.aspx?T=PRX&C=USA&D=May 22, 2012&R=6&F=D&Champ=Blimey
I didn't say he wasn't better than Big Brown. Truthfully I think he is better than Big Brown. My opinion of course.
In the bag. Sorry, i said in the back. Oops...
Truthfully, I think he has got the Belmont in the back. I am much more confidant with him than I was even with Big Brown. I'm not saying he is better than Big Brown, but I really think he can win the Triple Crown. Oh I am so excited!
Oh yea and about Zenyatta, which is undoutably one of or the greatest mares, she still isnt secretariat. Not even close, at most she is the best SINCE Affirmed. But i havent really desided that for myself yet.
Secretariat is the best, we should all know that, if not watch the Belmont stakes again in 1973 and tell me there wasnt something magical about that horse. Well there is, he was perfect as a horse, maybe his record wasnt but everyone losses a couple, if you want to look at his losses and judge him as a horse then you are missing the whole point of horse racing. This horse was amazing, spectacular, he changed a nation by running on single race. That is nothing less but perfect. Capturing the hearts of millions in one spectacular race. The longest race most horses will ever have to run. I think buckpasser was a terrific horse, but compairing him to Big Red...no. Anyway you all know how spectacular that horse is, the times he lost, he would come right back and beat a track record and win the very next time. This is a perfect horse. End of Story.
