Any news about where she is or if she is in foal?
Sure miss seeing her race! Hope she is happy and well.
I think a few of my favorite races are Easy Goer's Belmont. I love Easy Goer and he's one of my favorites. I think Seattle Slew and Affirmed meeting was just awesome as we may never have another TC winner and two of them meeting is just historical. Cigar in the BCC and Tiznow in the BCC (Tom Durkin's call is phenomenal for that race at that time). Of course any races with the true greats such as Citation, Count Fleet, Whirlaway, are always awesome to see because of the rarity of film in those days. Secretariat's Canadian International was awesome, first time around with him 2nd to Kennedy Road and that beautiful unique stride. But, on a sad note and a personal note, Go For Wands breakdown is forever etched in my soul and of course to see ANY film of my favorite and the greatest, Man O' War is always always a total treasure that there was ANY film of him racing. I enjoyed this article and the races. It's just wonderful to see any videos of these beautiful noble majestic wonderful animals.
When I read this horse has several Triple Crown winners in his pedigree that was exciting to me! Not only Seattle Slew and Affirmed, but Count Fleet and War Admiral as well, meaning that he traces back about 10 times to Man O' War, wow. Maybe I have a 3 year old to root for!!!
Wow, talk about horses running by the field like they were tied to posts!!! Way ahead even running erratic through the stretch. He could be something special. Looking forward to seeing him run again. I think I'll put him on my Virtual Stable list!!! Should be fun.
for hannahWTC (that reminds me of the world trade center) and in the grand scheme of things, isn't that more important then which horse we think is the greatest? BUT, so what about a Secretariat movie, they also made a movie about Mine That Bird, big whoop!!!
It's true. Are you a Secretariat fan!!! One of his charts even said he won "cantering" WHAT horse has had a DRF chart "cantering"??? Please advise, I'd appreciate it.
I'd like to reply to this comment and join the discussion! You want to negate track conditions, then you are a Secretariat fan with your head in the sand (as most are). Tracks are always being upgraded and made to be better for safety and performance. Now, as for Secretariat's times, horses have run faster. As a matter of fact, Hawkster, another 3 year old (because I know you guys bring that up) ran 1 1/2 miles on the turf in 2:22, even faster than Secretariat. Now, I hear you, Secretariat's was on dirt, however; Hawkster (who is on no one's top 100 list) ran faster than Secretariat's Man O' War stakes. Horses HAVE run faster than Secretariat so let's start being fair and honest about other great horses. And, Man O' War still ran 1 5/8 faster WAY back in 1920!!!!
Are you sure about the Saturday date? I haven't heard anything. The farm said it would be weeks yet???
Wow, thanks, a breathe of fresh air, someone not worshiping at the house of Secretariat!!!
what is the 4th record? He ran 3 races in 5 weeks, that would be 3 records. It can't be the Wood as he lost and he didn't set any records in the Arlingrton which came after the Belmont, so, 4???? You are talking about Secretariat???
