What else can be said about the legendary winner of the Triple Crown? Since 1923, 21 Triple Crown hopefuls have lost at the infamous 1-1/2 mile long Belmont Stakes. At the finish, Secretariat won by 31 lengths and ran the fastest 1½ miles on dirt in history, 2:24 flat, a record that still stands. Chic Anderson said it all while calling the 105th running of the Belmont Stakes, "SECRETARIAT IS WIDENING NOW...HE IS MOVING LIKE A TREMENDOUS MACHINE!"

His sire was never much of a runner but his grandsire is Storm Cat, who produced a couple classic distance runners in his hay day. Dam's sire also produced a couple long distance runners & won a G1 at 10 furlongs as well. His upset win may not of been a fluke…
