I’m still waiting for the horse that can finish 35 lengths ahead of the field and break all of Secretariat’s records.

I don’t expect to live that long.

I don't think we'll ever see another horse like Big Red. <> Me too. But I got to see Bobby Thomson's shot heard around the world, Miracle on Ice, Rangers win the Stanley Cup and Big Red. Not bad.

Justify ran 2:26 and Secretariat ran 2:24. Not even close. I saw Secretariat win the Belmont. It was jaw dropping.

That will only happen if another horse is born with the size of Secretariat’s heart....which after Autopsy was found to be one and half times the size of an ordinary horses heart and why he ran as he did. His ability to pump oxygen through his system is why he didn’t tire.

Even so he sure was quite the horse!
