I saw Secretariat in person at Claiborne. What a magnificent animal. To me, he will be THE gold standard in racing.

Looks like Secretariat is winning more than races here!!!

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

Seabiscut was always considered to have poor conformation. Had many health problems throughout his career.

Man O War was a stayer and passed on that trait in many of his offspring.

But of them all Secretariat is not only a good looking animal he PRODUCED numerous well put together offspring and many good hunters may very well find his name in their pedigree.

I saw a picture of his first test baby from a ordinary appy and what a magnificent animal it was.

That makes Secretariat the better horse.

Spyder,

I remember seeing a photo of that test baby - looked exactly like Secretariat but with the classic Appy blanket on the butt.

Secretariat, if I had to buy one of them. :P Not possible, for obvious reasons. He seems to be more solid, not as quick to turn up lame.

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day. --unknown author

Yup that's the one. Beautiful horse and could have won in any hunter class. Or line class.
