1989 Belmont Stakes: Full ABC Broadcast [01:05:24]
Easy Goer finally lived up to his spectacular promise of early spring yesterday when he roared past Sunday Silence on the turn for home and won the 121st Belmont Stakes by eight lengths. In doing so, he prevented Sunday Silence from becoming racing's 12th Triple Crown winner. Earlier this year, Easy Goer looked like the next Secretariat, a colt of limitless potential who might set new standards of excellence. Then, after second-place finishes in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness, Easy Goer seemed likelier to emulate his father, Alydar, who in 1978 became the only horse to finish second in all three Triple Crown races, losing each leg of the Triple Crown to Affirmed. But yesterday, there was talk of Secretariat again. Easy Goer's winning Belmont time of 2:26.01 under Pat Day over a fast but not unusually quick track was the second-fastest Belmont ever, behind only Secretariat's 1973 world-record clocking of 2:24. Easy Goer's performance ranks as one of the most impressive in the history of the sport. $1 Million Bonus Sunday Silence actually earned more in defeat than the winner's purse of $413520, getting a $1 million Triple Crown bonus for the best overall record in the three races. But he would have earned $2.5 million more, and a certain place in the sport's Hall of Fame, with a victory. Instead, he might be considered only the second-best 3-year-old of this year unless he can beat Easy Goer again. Easy Goer, a chestnut-colored son of Alydar and Relaxing, bred and ...

Secretariat's Triple Crown Run [08:32]
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.

Secretariat; The Michael Jordan Of Racehorses [02:32]
RIP Big Red ************************* PLS WATCH IN HD ;) & DON'T STEAL THIS ! ************************* Give my regards to Helen Bates "Penny" Chenery/Tweedy.. I wish you all the best ! *Secretariat (March 30, 1970 -- October 4, 1989) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse, that in 1973 became the first US Triple Crown champion in 25 years, setting new race records in two of the three events in the Series—the Kentucky Derby (1:592⁄5), and the Belmont Stakes (2:24)—records that still stand today. Secretariat was sired by Bold Ruler out of Somethingroyal, by Princequillo. He was foaled at Meadow Farm in Caroline County, Virginia. Like his famous predecessor Man o' War, Secretariat was a large chestnut colt and was given the same nickname, "Big Red." Secretariat's grand sire, Nasrullah, is also the great-great grand sire of 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. Owned by Penny Chenery, he was trained by Lucien Laurin and mainly ridden by Canadian jockey Ron Turcotte, along with apprentice jockey Paul Feliciano (first two races), and veteran Eddie Maple (last race). He raced in Chenery's Meadow Stable's blue and white checkered colors and his groom was Eddie Sweat. Secretariat stood approximately 16.2 hands (66 inches, 168 cm) tall, and weighed 1175 pounds (533 kg), with a 75 inch girth, in his racing prime.
