I got my horse about 4 years ago. I didn't know much about his past other than the abuse he had gone through and that he was an off the track thoroughbred. A friend of mine did some research on my horse's registered name and found that he is a direct grandson of Secretariat and that Bold Ruler (secretariat's sire) is also my horse's great grandsire. I'm just amazed that my horse has some of the best bloodlines a thoroughbred can have and I didn't know it when he was given to me free four years ago... He's by all means an amazing horse also. He's raced 40 times, had 4 wins, 5 second places, and 2 thirds (not a great career but still kinda a lot of races). He's great with kids, loves to go fast... I couldn't as for a better horse even if he had bad bloodlines or was grade. But now that I know he's a fancy bred race horse I can't help feel a little pride for him. Oh on a side note, his breeder was former Seahawks player Mike Tice...
