Secretariats last race - Victory for the greatest horse in modern times [03:10]
was an American Thoroughbred racehorse, who in 1973 became the first US Triple Crown champion in twenty-five years, setting new race records in two of the three events in the Series—the Kentucky Derby (1:59 2/5), and the Belmont Stakes (2:24)—records that still stand today. Secretariat was sired by Bold Ruler (a grandson of Nearco) and foaled to Somethingroyal. He was foaled at Meadow Farm in Caroline County, Virginia. Like the equally famous horse Man o' War, Secretariat was a large chestnut colt and was given the same nickname, "Big Red." Owned by Penny Chenery (aka Penny Tweedy), he was trained by Lucien Laurin and mainly ridden by fellow Canadian jockey Ron Turcotte, along with apprentice jockey Paul Feliciano (first two races), and veteran Eddie Maple (last race). He raced in Penny Chenery's Meadow Stable's blue and white checkered colors and his groom was Eddie Sweat. The story of Secretariat began with the toss of a coin in 1968 between Christopher Chenery of Meadow Stables and Ogden Phipps of Wheatley Stable. The idea of a coin toss came from Phipps, the owner of Bold Ruler, and Bull Hancock of Claiborne Farms as a way to get the very best mares for Bold Ruler, and when the toss went their way, to add well-bred fillies to their own broodmare band. Bold Ruler was considered one of the important stallions of his time.

1988 Carter Handicap [01:00]
Gulch, trained by D. Wayne Lukas, who saddled the Kentucky Derby winner, Winning Colors, took the Carter Handicap at Aqueduct yesterday. The horse took full advantage of the extremely fast racing surface to carry 124 pounds and Jose Santos seven furlongs, tying a stakes record of 1:20 2/5. Afleet, the favorite, was runner-up in the field of eight. Gulch's clocking duplicated that of King's Bishop, who posted the stakes standard in 1973. It was only one-fifth of a second slower than Dr. Fager's track record of 1:20 1/5, established in 1968. It's Acedemic, the outsider at $65.70-$1, was third ahead of Stacked Pack, King's Swan, Prospector's Halo, Seattle Knight and Love That Mac. Gulch, a 4-year-old son of Mr. Prospector-Jameela, earned $174300, the winner's share of the gross purse of $290500, for his owner-breeder, Peter M. Brant, and paid $6.40 for $2 to win as the second choice. He led at every call, posting fractions of 22 3/5, 44 4/5 and 1:08 2/5. With his earnings in the Carter, Gulch pushed his career earnings to $2033281, moving him into 28th position on the career list just ahead of Kelso.
