Secretariat's Triple Crown Run

21-16-3-1 1973 Triple Crown winner, one of the the greatest thoroughbreds of all-time. Running style: closer, but could go to the front AND stalk the lead as well. Won Sanford, Hopeful, Futurity, Laurel Futurity, and Garden State Futurity at two. Won Bay Shore, Gotham, Arlington Invitational, and Marlboro on dirt as well as the Triple Crown, then won the Man o' War and Canadian International on turf. Set still-standing stakes records in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness (though the Preakness time is controversial because of a clock malfunction), set still-standing dirt world record of 2:24 in Belmont and won by 31 lengths. Just one horse has broken 2:26. Sired Travers record-holder General Assembly, 1988 Champion 3-year-old colt Risen Star, and 1986 Horse of the Year Lady's Secret.
