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.
