Secretariat - The Greatest Champion of all Time

.


Secretariat - The People's Champion

Since we have been denied a Triple Crown for the 31st straight year, the longest drought in history, I thought I would give you a chance to relive the greatest champion in our history, Secretariat.

I had occasion to see this magnificant horse in Kentucky and to watch the three races along with millions of Americans as Secretariat not only made history but shattered records every time he stepped on a the track at a Triple Crown race.

You should take a few minutes to watch the three videos showing the Triple Crown that year, 1973, when Secretariat became an American legend. Nothing has ever been achieved close to his performance before or since that spring.

Although Seattle Slew and Affirmed both won the Triple Crown the same decade of the 1970's the performance by Secretariat stands alone in the history books.

Enjoy a flashback to the most incredible six minutes in horse racing history.

The Kentucky Derby - 1973



The Preakness Stakes - 1973



The Belmont Stakes - 1973
