Seabiscut was special because he gave people hope. the country at that time was in a bad place and the country needed something to show a "down on your luck" story that turned around into something special. I think he gave the country a reason to look forward.
I'm new to the horse racing game, so take what I have to say lightly. But, I think greatness comes from accomplishments. Secretariat has done things that no other horse has been able to accomplish. Winning the Belmont Stakes (ultimately the trip crown) in his time and length was incredible and has never been matched. I think thats greatness personified.
