    I don't really "follow" any of the great horses. But I did enjoy reading the Seabiscuit book and think Man O' War was pretty awesome.
    And because my mare has northern dancer (on both sides :/) I have a slight soft spot for him cause of the whole being related to my horse haha

    What are you talking about? She won the classic last year by over a lenght, and ran down Blame, and if she would have had a better run, would have beat him without a doubt this year, because she passed him right after the finish line, before either of them had a chance to be pulled up. Considering NO mare has EVER won the classic, in the first place, let alone win and then come back and place 2nd by a head the following year? I fail to see the "no action" part of the equation...

    Did you watch the same race I did? Because I know for sure that it was VERY close and VERY exciting.

    Secretariat. No doubt. Followed very closely by Man O'War.

    It's kind of ironic how both horses were 16.3 hh, both nicknamed Big Red & both raced 21 times!

    Man O'War seems to be the favorite of most. Yes, he was the Greatest horse in the first 1/2 of the 20th Century, but what about --- drumroll here ---- SECRETARIAT.

    It is Secretariat who still olds the 1 1/2 mile World Record at 2:24, running each furlong at 12 seconds or less. No horse has come within 2 seconds of Secretariat's Belmont mark, and that Secretariat movie did a real harm(in my opinion) to people who have never seen the video of the real 1973 Belmont Stakes. Please watch it on Youtube.

    This is my first post here, and my id is: Lovebigred, because SECRETARIAT, also known as Big Red, was the horse I fell in love with at age 10. But no horse since Secretariat has ever come close to his time record, and no one ever will.
