The historic 1938 match horse race between West Coast star Seabiscuit, and Triple Crown winner War Admiral. [Video] I love the way they start off and if you did not know Seabiscuit and War Admiral are related they were both sired by Man o war
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!"
The greatest racehorse that ever lived.Secretariat at the Belmont Stakes. If I was able to go back in time to go to just one event I would want to be at this race. To watch the last race of the greatest horse that ever was.
