Stories, Watch

Ready for some chills and a good cry? Watch this Heart Breaking video taken by Bill Lamb that turned out to be some of the last footage of Secretariat who died on 4 October 1989.

In 1973 Secretariat, an American Thoroughbred racehorse became the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years. He had a record-breaking win in one of the greatest races of all time in the Belmont Stakes race. He left every horse on the field behind him and win by an astonishing 31 lengths. He won five Eclipse Awards as well as Horse of the Year on multiple occasions. He was placed in the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. In the ‘Top 100 United States Racehorses of the 20th Century’ Secretariat is second only to Man o War whose racing career was in 1919 – 1920.

Among the most significant works of God, remarkable, magnificent, a star is treasured and never forgotten. Secretariat is regarded as the greatest thoroughbred racehorse of all time. Bill Lamb in the video said, “I always felt like I’d want to see Secretariat, the greatest racehorse that lived. And we drove in and actually ended up seeing the owner who came down the path from the stables and asked him to see Secretariat even though I did not have an appointment. And he said ‘Yes, I’ll show him to you’.“

 

 

The exhilaration felt were remarkable and much more then what he expected, he did not want to miss a second and he captured the entire event while he was there. This is some precious video that must never be lost and watching Secretariat still gives people that tingling down the spine and tears to the eyes even to this day. Even though his foot was hurting at the time he is still shining of greatness.
