BALTIMORE — Love the horse. Love I’ll Have Another the way jockey Mario Gutierrez loves him. Sure, the colt has changed the young rider’s life, brought him out of the morning shadows of Santa Anita Park, where he worked horses for trainers who did not care to know his name, and into America’s living rooms for the first two legs of the Triple Crown.
Words can’t quite describe the race I’ll Have Another ran and the drama down the back-stretch. But video sure can.
Wow Secretariat is there another angel in the stable here…1973 i was in the 2nd year of my teaching an coaching career…how good was this horse…Secretariat speaks for himself
It’s been 39 years. What a stretch run. You can look at pedigrees and speed figures all you want. But, you can’t measure the fight and the heart a horse has.
The 1973 Kentucky Derby won by the immortal SECRETARIAT in the record-smashing time of 1:59 2/5 that stands to this day.
The actual footage of Secretariat’s incredible Preakness Stakes victory during the second race of the 1973 Triple Crown.
A tribute video for the 1973 Belmont Stakes where not only did Secretariat become the 9th Triple Crown Winner, but also engraved an indelible image upon all those who witnessed this immaculate horse. The Belmont Stakes of 1973 certainly has its wondrous memories for those who witnessed it and no amount of time will ever dull or cloud them, but for those who did not exist at the time or were too young to remember it, this event serves as a metaphor for Individuals to understand what is Noble, Ethical, and Heroic.
