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.
