  • Looks like Eddie Sweat is the groom for Slew. Another crown that Eddie was involved in.

  • I love Secretariat! I think he’s the most magnificent horse, EVER! Truly, the horse that God built!

  • Everyone says what amazing race too watch but does anybody think what goes on behind the dark truth they hide about what happened too the race horses after they don't win anymore races or get injured so horses are only young horses or thoroughbreds that have race before with markings on them the owners sent them too auction then sent too the slaughter house plus these owners are never punished or prosecuted for they actions or cruelty because they know they can get away with it plus they need too feel pain like the horses do

    • I bet you eat hamburgers, ribs and wings.

  • American pharaoh

  • Justify

  • SECRETARIAT is to racing what THE BEATLES are to music........THEEEEE GREATEST! never again will we see the likes of SECRETARIAT....closest was CITATION!

  • Johnny Campo. Looked and sounded like a mafia boss.

  • I just heard that Justify may be brought out of retirement next year to race in the Breeders Cup Classic?

  • It is as if the breeding farm and you know who that is hid the FACT that Secretariat did have good breeding and winning offspring's and remember how Secretariat dies from a curable disease basely from a dirty stall!!! and no one even comment on it!! Penny did not fellow up proper;;y for a horse that gave her so much he died in pain that was preventable but what the hell the rich got richer off him!!! So sad!!

  • Seattle Slew was form Secretariat!!

    • check your facts, not by Secretariat, but the dams had similar lines.

  • You secretariet were gods gift to all of us

  • These precious beautiful animals are nothing more then $$$$$. Stinking gross piece of shot, human animals.

  • He was out classed by his cousin and if he hadn't got sick in some instants secratarit would be undefeated.

  • give credit to eddie sweat whom have a significant contribution for caring secretariat..

  • The "Triple Crown," the dream of all who love racehorses. In my book, "Black Deuce," I made a huge effort to explain how much I love horses and racing. www.amazon.com/Black-Deuce-Stan-D-Jensen/dp/1547296585/ref=pd_rhf_gw_p_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=RNNDSH36NW24MFBGJ172

  • Just so thrilling to watch these super horses battling for the crown 🐴🐴❤️❤️

  • Secretariat , Secretariat, Secretariat , Secretariat, all said!!!!!!!!!!!

  • heart twice as big

  • Bob got it with American pharaoh and justify

  • I just looked up the bloodlines on Seattle Slew, and he is definitely related to Secretariat!! Also to Man'o'War. WOW!!!

  • Once Visa sponsored the bonus, six horses in eight years were live going into the Belmont, and all six lost. I had War Emblem in the Derby and Sarava at 71-1 in the Belmont, missing the 2400+ exacta over Meg D'oro even though I said you could toss his Preakness.

  • Sir Barton was not a Triple Crown winner because it was not the Triple Crown when he won it. Risen Star was robbed in the Belmont. Sunday Silence And Easy Goer robbed each other. The connections of one of them should have paid any price to buy the other out of contention. In 1989, I took a $20 cold exacta on the second choice over the favorite and hit all three races.

  • Still HATE The Crop.

  • You gotta give Sham credit, he battled with Secretariat in the Kentucky and battled for half of the Belmont. Props.

    • PanduhhXpress ,both of these had the same Damsire. Both Secretariat and Sham came from Princequillo.

    • @Steve K No one knew they both had oversized hearts until they died at 19 and 23, which is an early age for most thoroughbreds.

    • @Steve K Not until these two horses died did anyone know they had extra large hearts. Therefore this wasn't a consideration when selecting mares. Genetics specialists today would no doubt have capitalized on it.

    • @KMA Associates how differently? In what way?

    • Sham was a damn good horse and a great contender for Secretariat!

  • The Wednesday before the 1981 Belmont, I called into CNN and asked John Campo (who lost 45 horses in a barn fire soon after) if he was worried that a horse like Summing could steal the race. "Never been done," he said. I picked Summing at 7-1 but wound up not betting him, as the night before the Belmont I hit the OTB late double at Yonkers with a 2-1 and 14-1 shot who paid $310.

  • I don't like the Spectacular Bid story (blame it on the jockey)... but what do I know? I'm just a big fan, but no expert...

    • The trainer didn't help either.

  • Breaks my heart how you all run and horses when they're too damn young stop it you have no feelings for the horses at all you just care about the freaking money break his leg how could you you have no heart nut and it brings tears to my eyes to see this horse's leg broke when you know damn well you're running these horses too young he gave it everything he had for you and this is what you do to him there's no love

    • Gerry Jones What a shame someone did not love you enough to teach you to punctuate a sentence.

    • EASY GERRY....THIS IS WHAT THESE TYPE HORSES NEED ...THEY ARE CHAMPIONS .

  • The old woman seems like an attention whore... hey bitch the horse is famous you just paid the feed bill

    • Ronnie Civella Read Big Red of Meadow Stable by William Nack before you make another ill-informed comment about Miss Penny.

  • a horse is gonna run, that is their will. Secretariat ran with out being lashed repeatedly, jockeys need to be lashed you little fucks. never be another secretariat.

  • I feel the same way I did when I watched Secretariat win the triple crown when I was 7. He fills up my heart!!! Best horse of my lifetime!

  • A GOOD LOOKING HORSE

  • SHAM WAS A CHAMPION TOO

    • Sec and Sham were 1st cousins through the mothers!

    • Yes he was the second fastest still a good horse.

    • Madeline Tramantano but he wasn’t a legend. Secretariat was something special, that no one had ever seen before.

  • THESE CHAMPS R BEAUTIFULL ANIMALS

  • How can you say there was nothing "royal" about Seattle Slew? Bold Ruler was his grandfather and Secretariat was the son of Bold Ruler. Sounds pretty special to me!

    • @Theresa Santucci and HER sire was Princequillo

    • Something Royal was Secretariats mother ok.

  • the United States gave the world two great ATHELETES,Mohhmad Ali, and SECRETARIAT

    • @Christos Spartos Lucien Laurin Secretariat's trainer was Canadian as well! However, he announces that Ron Turcotte is the best jockey in America! It's been awhile, however I did read that Ron Turcotte is an American and Canadian citizen! In any event, IMHO he is the BEST JOCKEY!

    • He was Canadian.

    • Don't forget Secretariat's jockey Ron Turcotte !

  • So what went happened with horse breeding after the war? No Triple Crown winner until 1973 with Secretariat. They closed the Thoroughbred Stud Book and no new genes have come into the breed lines. Breeding the best to the best but the best is being dilute by the average - and I think that quite often they geld the wrong horse.

    • apparently the idea of a purebred is beyond your understanding. The stud book was closed to outside breeds for centuries not decades. Of course trying to improve the breed by using only lines already in existence is a daunting task. We now have "hot house" horses that do not get much time in pastures running and building bones and learning how to be a horse due to the huge value. Look at what happened to Zenyatta's first filly, she died while playing in the pasture. There are more medications being allowed and when used as they are in young horses can affect the development of bones and lung capacity. My father and grandfather did things the old fashioned way, only oats, hay and hard work, no drugs. I agree that horses need to wait longer to run hard but today not running at 2 can be a hindrance to their maturity while facing opponents during the grueling triple crown trials and preps.

  • And we have winner number #13 Justified

    • tsukune007 it’s justify

    • This Horse loves the Mudd sloop born a Sloop his Mother was a Mudder

  • i watched history justify wins the triple crown!!!!! 3 years after american pharaoh

  • Now Bob Beaffert has 2 real true Triple Crown winners American Pharoah in 2015 and Now JustIfIy in 2018 Make Bob The GOAT Trainer

  • The English TC is much more difficult.

  • "Nothing royal about Seattle Slew"? Ha. The Domino line shows up at multiple points, on both sides, and the horse's brown-black color was straight Domino; the Fair Play line is also well expressed through Discovery and War Admiral (2x). The great sires Bold Ruler, Equipoise, Alsab, Nasrullah and Polynesian, and immortal dams including Pink Domino, Miss Disco and Black Polly all fill out his sterling pedigree, royal as they come.

    • All thoroughbreds have top champs in their pedigree.

    • @Theresa Santucci what? Duh what?

    • Secretariats mother was named something Royal duh.

  • Wide world of sports did a much better documentary.

  • Poor Alydar was murdered!

    • Yeah...and they were only charged with insurance fraud. GO FIGURE.

    • And in his own country🤔.

  • I saw the 1973 Belmont, most thrilling race i ever saw

    • @Will Williams Because they saw the world record totally shattered. Not the Stake record , track record or US record, not the three year old record but the WORLD record on dirt; any age, any weight. AND it still stands! That's how.

    • . How's the 73 Belmont I mean thrilling one Secretary of ran off and left them all by 31

    • Consider yourself one of the luckiest People in the world. I know that will be in your heart forever. Im happy to see Secretariat's film winning all three. Brings tears. Beautiful athlete, and so gentle.

    • lenicandii I cannot even fathom what it would feel like to have lived & experienced Big Red's triple crown crown win. I cry & am just blown away just watching him on CS-tv or on the big screen... Let em run Ronnie, let him run!

    • You were there for Big Red's triple crown win?

  • Was The Triple Crown a thing when man o war was alive?If so,he would've won.Hes one of the greatest racehorses of all time!

    • It is said that Riddle didn't want to abuse his colt at 1 1/4 mile at barely three. That's a horseman!

    • @Alexis Unangst In his day, yes.

    • Yes, and Man O'War would have won it. The only other horse who comes any where close to him is Secretariat. Man O'Wars ' owner felt that early May was too early in the year to risk his health. What a shame!!!

    • I think the derby and preakness were only a week apart back then. Eligible horses would run one or the other.

    • Secretariat is the best race horse ever. If not the best horse that ever lived.

  • horses are predictable in breeding...if you believe in breeding then how come secretariat colts are not like him...all tripple crown winner are jusr perfect breed for racing specially secretariat..that is why someday.one horse will be born and beat the record of secretariat..

    • Because the mare has something to do with it also. Not only that all siblings are not alike .

    • Secretariat did have champion children, training has changed, breeding has changed, the industry has changed.

    • I don't think that this will be ever happen. I can't believe. Truely

    • Secretariat was a freak of nature, though but he did have a good pedigree. He was said to be perfect physically, intellectually, and even emotionally. Maybe one day, another freak of nature will be born. And no animal can breed a replica of itself.

  • How in the world they skept Cañonero II`s story in 1971? Stupidity? Ignorance? Go figure...

  • @40:14 what's with these loser jockey's deliberately angling in on the Belmont favoruite at the gate? Here in 2002 against War Emblem, later in 2014 the same with California Chrome.

    • It's the nature of sports. In baseball don't all the other teams angle after last year's World Series winners? In the NFL the aim is to keep the Super Bowl champs from winning back to back championships, it's no different for horse racing, be the horse that history will remember for stopping the current bid for the triple.

  • en espanol

  • fucking white people, man.

    • There's always 1 prick in a bunch of roses Carol so pay him no mind...stupid is as stupid does....

    • yellowstarfish09 Fucking "white people". Huh? What does that mean idiot? I have worked at a horse track for decades. FYI - SO MANY of my customers are Black, Asian, Hispanic, etc.. That flushes your ridiculous accusation of racism down the toilet, doesn't it?

    • lmao perfect comment. seriously wtf haha

  • what about ruffain, who broke some of Secretariat, records and won the Philly triple crown

    • She was also known in racing as a "freak of nature" she was huge for not just a filly but as a 2 year old she was so large most thought she was a stud colt. Most people don't realize that until she broke down, she was winning. She lead every race she ran, including against Foolish Pleasure.

  • My Grand-daughter and I would watch the Movie Secretariat and love it as well as the actual filming of the Triple Crown with Secretariat. What a beautiful horse with a mind and personality of his own. How sad that he was in so much pain that he had to be put to sleep eventually to give him peace. Looking at him you can see how smart he was, how he controlled the Races in his own time and space...A Legend, a Champion, a treat for anyone who saw him in action xoxo

    • A lot of people don't notice though but zenyatta's kids are Secretariat descendants

    • @GARY MCGILL That's awful. I had the "Him" and "Her" buttons from OTB NYC when I was a kid, and I can't find them either. (WHAT AN AWFUL RACE-- RIP RUFFIAN).

    • I HAD A TWO DOLLAR TICKET ON BIG RED IN THE BELMONT FOR REMEMBERANCE ...AND NOW I CAN'T FIND IT .

    • the best racer ever, ran like the wind.

  • Poor Sham. 1 year before or after and we'd be talking about 4 triple crown winners from that time period.

    • make it 5 triple crown winners from that decade.. if alydar was born a year later than affirmed..

    • @foots2066 Yes, I know they were related. Sham had a large heart too! However, Secretariat won in that category as well! You have to realize that really good horses run the Triple Crown! However, you have to give it up to the jockey as well. IMHO, Ron Turcotte Secretariat's jockey was the best! He was like the horse whisperer. He worked with Riva Ridge to attain the best from him. He worked with their flaws and improved their assets! The TC is considered the jocky's race! They have to use strategy to keep the horses and riders safe! At the Belmont Secretariat was going 49 MPH! Can you imagine staying on a horse going that speed?

    • @Patty Healy Agree! Did you know Sec and Sham were 1st cousins through their mothers? So both had Princequillo blood for distance. but Sec had Bold Ruler blood for speed!

    • @foots2066 He whipped the hell out of him to catch up to Secretariat at the 1973 Belmont! He came in last and he broke down after the race ! He never raced a gain! Rules should be changed! Just concede when their isn't s chance of winning! There is no horse even today that can equal or best Secretariat! He is the GOAT! Even Secretaria' s jockey felt bad for Sham! Heck of it is, is that most horses don't respond to the whip!

  • What about seabiscuit and Man O' War

    • Both horses didn't win the triple crown 🐴🐎🏇

    • +horselover19 aphmauisbae ?? Man O' War won both the Preakness and the Belmont in 1920. He wasn't entered in the Derby as his owner felt it was run too early in the season for a three year old. (And Seabiscuit was a late bloomer.)

    • Faith Oldaker they never won a tripple crown and they never were in any of the races for the tripple crown thats why

  • for Christians on youtube: 1woksape spiritual warfare *it will change your life *we are in the greatest spiritual warfare and destitution in all of human history. It is the root cause of all that is going wrong in the world. Christians wake up, look out and pray. Prayerless Christians embolden the enemies of God and bring destruction on themselves and their nations. *God always wins. * Jeremiah 17:5 ...trust in God, not in human beings or experts.

  • A fine documentary...please update* Thank you :)

    • definitely needs to be updated with 13 triple crown winners now.

  • I guess they have to make a new documentary now that American Pharoah won the Triple Crown!

    • 2 new ones American Pharaoh in 2015 and Justified 2018. both under the same trainer,

    • After today they'll have to add both American Pharaoh and Justify

    • +Genuine Risk Love your "name!" My friend & I screamed so loudly while watching Genny win the Derby that the guys next door broke into my house armed with baseball bats, to "save" us! I'm sort of glad she was beaten fairly in the Belmont; if she hadn't been, that SOB Cordero's having blatantly (IMO) fouled her on Codex in the Preakness would be much, much tougher to live with.

  • NOW IHAVE SEEN A TROJAN RUN ,COULD HAVE SHATTERED THE RECORD IF HE DESIRED GOD BLESS THE PHAROAH

  • People we got opportunity to witness history today! I still can't believe that I got to see a triple crown winner in my lifetime. I don't ever think I cheered so loudly in my life when they turned the corner for home. I even got choked up a bit. Man I love this sport! Congrats to the American Pharaoh crew and to all of us!

    • Me too!

    • I PICKED SECRATARIAT....AFFRIMED....AMERICAN PHARARO..AND JUSTIFY....I LIKE MAXIMUN SECUROTY TO WIN THIS YEARS DERBY .

    • I'VE BEEN LUCKY TO HAVE SEEN 5 TRIPLE CROWN WINNERS

    • I understand how you must have cheered; it was the way I did when Secretariat won. After 37 years I was beginning to wonder if maybe no horse would ever do it again.

    • +STANLEY PARANORMAL I feel this would be unfair to owners, who want their horses trained by the best. And the 10% of the purse that goes to a trainer isn't a huge cut, although I realize it's a lot of money when it comes to stakes races. Aside from these issues, unless the best-qualified horses - regardless of their connections - are entered in a race, its results would always be subject to debate.

  • Hurray for American Pharaoh! 37 curse is broken!

    • +Amanda Kelly While I acknowledge the agony of three and a half decades (waited 18 years myself, since really learning what the Triple Crown was during Silver Charm's attempt), I question calling it a curse. I say they've let the breed weaken, with all the focus on fractious speed, and that made the Triple Crown that much harder to achieve, similar to England's. On a happier note, a horse came close to winning England's Triple Crown a few years ago, so it can also still be done, if good enough.
