Secretariat wins the Triple Crown.As a teenager from Kentuckiana, I had a poster of Secretariat rather than of Bobby Sherman like my friends, :) He was a handsome horse and wore blue and white checkerd print.

Secretariat during his retirement ceremony.  I just love his mane.

Secretariat, the horse of the century retires. Aqueduct Race Track is the scene of the farewell to the greatest race horse this century Big Red parade for the last time on a race track before his journey to stud at Claiborne Farm.

Secretariat and his owner, Penny Chenery (you know that part in the movie...where Penny asks to have a moment with Red and it's like they just look right into each other's hearts and completely understand...I cry)

Ruffian - I wasn't even born when she raced and every time I see her I cry. I hope to have even half as much determination, courage, and heart as this horse.

I saw her match race and was so impressed by every molecule in her being. she was special!

Ruffian - she was beautiful and amazing... she was all heart and Ruffian also had the great bloodlines of Nearco in her veins, the undefeated Italian champion

the best girl race horse that has ever lived. she is a power full but yet kind and pretty horse that i will remember for all my days. she will all ways have a special place in my heart.
