Secretariat At Play [01:34]
This is a short clip of the 12 year old Secretariat running for enjoyment at Claiborne Farm. In 1973 Secretariat became the first US Triple Crown champion in 25 years, setting race records in all three events in the Series—the Kentucky Derby (1:59.4), the Preakness Stakes (1:53) and the Belmont Stakes (2:24) - records that still stand today. He is considered to be one of the greatest thoroughbreds of all time. Secretariat was conceived in Kentucky and born in Doswell Virginia on March 29th, 1970. Secretariat died on October 4th, 1989 at Paris, Kentucky. The race horse was euthanized at age 19 due to laminitis, a hoof condition. Secretariat was given the honor of being buried whole in the Claiborne cemetery. It is traditional for horses to be buried "head, heart, and hooves", but certain special horses deserve special treatment.

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.
