Seattle Slew's 1977 Triple Crown

Me filming my TV with my camcorder...the VHS "Jewels of the Triple Crown" which I love and sadly you can't buy as a first copy was destroyed...I bought a second copy and the quality is lacking. But I still wanted to give it a try. I had hoped they'd come out with a DVD since to date we still haven't had any Triple Crown winner after Affirmed. In my view Slew was greater than next year's champion--his times were faster, and twice he beat the younger Affirmed. Yet for some reason it is Affirmed people remember. Not me. I was a Slew fan. I went to Longacres Race Track after Slew retired--he went to several tracks for a farewell gallop, and I got to see him. An experience I'll never forget.
