I hate they use whips on these horses.. notice there was inly 2 whips used on Secretariat.. Was pissed when I seen it he did not need it. None of them do. This is the problem I have with horse racing. It’s cruel
Why not just name this video “Secretariat” 😒
Owner sounds like a child. Wow. Good for them.
6:43 this has been my profile picture for a while, I love Secretariat!
Would have been Shams triple crown if not for Secretariat. Two GREAT horses.
@HoustonIsImmortal fair enough 😆
And if my aunt had balls, she'd be my UNCLE.
All said and done the horse is the most regal and majestic animal and all those ppl who own these horses count your blessings you have these beauties ❤️😍😍😍👍
Yes...Yes! Horses built all civilization on their backs!
Seattle slew defeated affirmed in his come back race
Let’s not forget a great horse Big Brown who really would’ve down it all in good fashion if it was for injuries
I may be too big and too old to be a jockey, but I still keep up with the sport.....the sport of Kings.🏇🏇🏇
New subscriber...to me, thoroughbred horseracing is the greatest sport in the world.🏇🏇🏇
He accelerated from gate to finish line in the Derby and hit 39 mph before Ronnie stood up in his irons. I wonder how fast he was running in the Belmont ? I wish Mr. & Mrs. Chenery had lived to see this day.
Notice that Ronnie never had to use his whip to get Big Red to run. He was born to run. GOAT.
In the Derby, as he comes around the last turn, you can see Ron using the whip. That was the only time in all 3 races.
Kwek Isman Que?
I still say real queit won that race! He hit the wire first and then some photo show a complete different head bob, but you never see the full photos of the horses full bodies, the finish line, sequence. Real Queit won!!! he was robbed!!
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!
Whirlaway was better.
Who made the others?
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
Go cry somewhere eles
Take your animal "rights" b.s. and stick it.
I bet you eat hamburgers, ribs and wings.
SECRETARIAT is to racing what THE BEATLES are to music........THEEEEE GREATEST! never again will we see the likes of SECRETARIAT....closest was CITATION!
@Faith Oldaker WHIRLAWAY just as great as secretariat...you're right FAITH.
Until you remember Whirlaway...
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!!
@Valley of the Rogue I visited Claiborne in 1980, and yep, their stalls were immaculate. Secretariat was a big friendly boy. I had my picture taken with him, and blown up poster size. It hangs in my office. (Jan Griffiths).
He had laminitis in all four feet by the time he was euthanized. He was terminally ill. You clearly never visited Claiborne Farm, where Secretariat remained for the rest of his life. His stall was well kept. I saw it, you didn't.
Laminatis isn't exactly curable. It can be controlled. And I know for a fact Claiborne Farm cleans the stalls constantly. Heavy bodied horses like Secretariat tend to come down with laminatis without warning. Penny always kept tabs on Riva Ridge and Secretariat. So before you go saying Claiborne abused Secretariat do your research into horse care.
Seattle Slew was form Secretariat!!
Seattle Slew was by a grandson of Bold Ruler. Bold Ruler was the sire of Secretariat. Both also trace to Princequillo on their dam's side of the family. My Charmer dam of Seattle Slew was a great granddaughter of Princequillo where as Secretariat's dam was by Princequillo.
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.
Deanna Pye And I hate animal rights activist who have no idea what the hell they’re talking about
They wouldn't even exist in your twisted world. I HATE animal "rights" whack jobs. HATE them because I know what they are.
He was out classed by his cousin and if he hadn't got sick in some instants secratarit would be undefeated.
His only fault was that he was controlled by humans. The ULTIMATE THOROUGHBRED.
give credit to eddie sweat whom have a significant contribution for caring secretariat..
And Billy Silver!
You could feel the bond between him and Secretariat. I think Secretariat had the best people around him to care and loved.
@Little Bird peleas..de.gallos
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
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.
True the term Triple Crown wasn't started until 1930 when Gallant Fox got it, but many people consider Sir Barton the first Triple Crown winner because he is the first to sweep 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.
@Mary Carroll Unfortunately, they did not record times of horses that came in 2 or 3.....
@Mary Carroll Sham was a good sire... "According to Jockey Club records, Sham sired 347 winners (55.5%) and 44 stakes winners (7.0%) from 625 named foals. The Blood-Horse credits Sham with 47 stakes winners (7.5%). He was an influence for stamina.Apr 9, 1970"
Sham broke records too but he was second. His greatness shpuld have been recorded.
@Maria Bykofsky at the 1973 belmont?
@Randy Oliveira i so agree. Beautiful horse. So fast. I wish he had become a 3 year old in another year
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...
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
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
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!
ME TOO !
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!
@foots2066 When it comes to names of famous racehorses people should get the name right, since there could be another horse out there with the name Something Royal.
@Raven Blackthorne Yes, it is one word, but spelled Somethingroyal. Dont be so touchy until YOU are perfect, K??
Slew was a great horse. But the Derby, Preakness and Belmont records are Big Red’s. And will be after I die. Racing has changed so that breeding a speed horse like Red is not profitable (WSJ) article I read about 2years ago.
@Theresa Santucci The name is Somethingroayl. It's not two words split apart.
@Theresa Santucci and HER sire was Princequillo
the United States gave the world two great ATHELETES,Mohhmad Ali, and SECRETARIAT
Oh ! Give me A Break..that big mouth..so what Lady...just another stupid boxer..who dies with his head beaten up..he is no match for this..why compare....
@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 !
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
Hector Rodriguez Baffert*
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.
@Theresa Santucci Secretariats's dam's name was Somethingroyal. It was spelled all in one word due to number of letters allowed in a horse's name to be registered.
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!
Yes... terrible... disgusting
Yeah...and they were only charged with insurance fraud. GO FIGURE.
I saw the 1973 Belmont, most thrilling race i ever saw
luv1yLynn Ronnie let him run. He might have tapped him twice in the Derby but never needed his whip after that. Red wanted to run and boy did he ever. Records that will never be broken. GOAT. Read “The Horse God Built” to find out how people experienced that Triple Crown run in 1973. I saw him in Saratoga in 1973. He was scheduled for the Travers Stakes but was scratched for a cold. Like everyone else at Saratoga we had come to see Big Red. They saddled him up and paraded him along the rail. He stopped about six feet away from me and I was able to look him in the eye. His look was the same as Ali’s, I am the greatest! One of the greatest days of my live after my marriage that has lasted 50 years.
Will Williams Can you translate this into American English?
Not the most thrilling race. The Greatest Race Ever. 31 lengths doesn’t create suspense other than “ Ronnie don’t fall off “.
@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
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.
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.
@Mary Carroll I believe he broke a bone. He came in last at the Belmont, never to race again! He really was a good horse.
@Patty Healy Sham was beaten. No horse should be beaten. Sham was a great horse. Secretariat was just faster. My heart breaks for that beautiful animal. Any other year, Sham would have been the triple crown winner and he would have broken records - not Big Red's records- but Sham would have been in rhe record books dor his speed.
@Patty Healy didnt Sham break his leg during the race?
I hate when they hit them.
I would agree about Sham except he laid an egg in the Belmont.
What about seabiscuit and Man O' War
@Salice McCool Seabiscuit won 11 out of 15 races in the late 30's....
Raven Blackthorne i said that 2 years ago lmao
@Chey Debold Man 'O War won the 1920 Preakness and Belmont. He didn't run in the Derby because his owner thought running a horse a mile and a quarter that young and that early in the season wasn't a good idea.
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.)
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!
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.
Nice Documentary. Very well done. cs-tv.org/tv/video-l-YXtJjyf1k.html
Praying American Pharoah breaks the triple crown curse!!!
Lucky # 13
He did then 3 years later justify won the triple crown also.
Don't pray, it happened
He just did it! American Pharaoh broke the 37-year drought!!
@***** Like the late great Jackie Gleason would say, how sweet it is!
Funny Cide, Smarty Jones and I'll have another, such great athletes who have won the Triple Crown not in real life but always in my heart
LIKE MAXIMUM SECURITY
@Megan Woodard Now he has
@Big Kitty:) Been following his run since the derby, I'm hoping he wins!!! Lots of hype and incredible praise for him from some very highly respected people in horse racing.
@Megan Woodard American Pharoah,if you don't already know.
WOW, this was an absolutely fantastic video!! Thanks for posting this. Was thrilling!
A safety pin in the horse's hoof? Sound like foul play.
I was going to explain this as well, Velcro doesn't work as horses are known to chew on bandages and the clips used on ace bandages fall off to easy.
@Susan Nunes Okay, thank you for clearing that up for me. That makes more sense.
@chibilaichi --No, that was the excuse given for a lousy ride by Ron Franklin. The pin happened, but that is not why he lost. Franklin never rode Bid again.
Safety pins are used to hold leg bandages in place. Many horses wear standing bandages in the stable, and polo wraps or other bandages while exercising to protect and support their legs. Grooms commonly keep long rows of bandages on their pant legs so they can grab them easily while squatting to wrap the legs. One probably just dropped off. It was just bad luck.
Probably some ladies fancy hat lost it's pin?? You never know. People shouldn't be allowed WHERE the horses are going to be walking. Lots of fancy clothes and costumes at those top races. wow, what a sad thing to happen. And it hurt the horse bad. ouch
Why CANONERO II is missing from the list?
He was not a triple crown winner 🏇🐴🐎
Alysheba was my fav growing up and still holds a piece of my heart
now 2 in 3 years for this decade. how long to the next, # 14? I remember the 70's so much hope for racing after 3 triples in the 70's people doubted how difficult an accomplishment it was then when nothing for the 80's, 90's, early 2K's people then said the horses were too soft to win. Racing has lost it's shine to the American public. Crowds are down and track owners trying to get faster times have made the surfaces dangerous to the delicate limbs of today's thoroughbreds. We need to do something to strengthen their bones and lungs but how?
My mom and dad always raved on and on about Citation. They wanted to name ME Citation or a name near it....I was born that year. 1948 A lot of crown winners in the 40's and 70's. NOW....it's darn near impossible. CLOSE but nope.
In my opinion, these horses who missed the Triple Crown should have won it: Alysheba, Sunday Silence, Silver Charm, Real Quiet, Smarty Jones, and Big Brown. In the case of the latter two horses, the Belmont marked their only career losses. Real Quiet was only four inches away. Silver Charm had everything he needed. Alysheba and Sunday Silence were the victim of poor trips/jockey error.
@Dan Pisowloski --The one horse who DESERVED it above all was Spectacular Bid, one of the best horses ever to race. But for a lousy jockey, the 1979 Triple Crown was his.
Alysheba should be Triple Crown Winner #12. McCarron admits today he was scared to death on Alysheba during his Belmont. At least he has the guts to admit he blew it for the horse. Van Berg told McCarron before the Race the horse would be in front the entire Race. McCarron was white as a ghost, Van Berg knew it was over then. Owners of Alysheba should've put Pat Day on Alysheba for the Belmont!!
Alydar jockey always places the horse on the outside obviously hes going to run more, at a higher speed to cover the same distance. Alydar is actually faster so swap jockeys and Alydar wins ..
And poor Alydar for dying the way he did. He just couldn't seem to get the needed break despite being a good racehorse and sire.
Thank you for posting! Great footage of the races of all the contenders for the Triple Crown.
