Overview

Secretariat captured the public's imagination like no other horse. With his burnished chestnut coat glistening and his powerful muscles rippling, Secretariat stormed home by an astonishing 31 lengths to win the 1973 Belmont Stakes and the Triple Crown as thousands of witnesses watched in awe. More than 30 years later, the great horse still has a firm hold on people's hearts and minds, his popularity having never waned. Author Timothy T. Capps tells the riveting story of Secretariat from the champion's birth at Meadow Stable in Virginia and his tutelage on the track under renowned trainer Lucien Laurin, to his great victories with beloved jockey Ron Turcotte and his life after the racetrack. A true Thoroughbred legend, Secretariat still reigns supreme as one of the 20th century's greatest athletes.

    A reviewer

    I was very impressed by this book. I'm a fairly new horse racing fan (although I've always loved horses) and Secretariat's story was an inspiration. Although for a racing beginner the pedigree and racing times were a bit confusing, Mr. Capps make the book interesting and it was clear he had loved Secretariat as if it were his own horse. Mr. Capps is a very talented writer and the book was very well written. Many said Secretariat was another Man o' War, the book made me wonder, if there was a race run by history's greatest horses, who would win? This book made me a huge Secretariat fan. I give this two thumbs up.
