He was the point God made to Job,
A horse of noble strength.
He ran each race with all his might,
No matter what the length.

A mighty stallion bred to run,
His nostrils snorting fire.
He followed in the hoof prints of
His legendary sire.

And when the gunshot cracked the air,
He leapt into the fray.
Like a magnificent machine
Prepared to win the day!

The Derby saw his character,
As he came from behind.
At Belmont his supremacy
Was etched into our minds.

And finally at Pimlico
He won the triple crown.
Nothing deterred the chestnut colt,
Big Red would not back down!

He thundered into history,
Like a grand chariot!
And time will not forget the name,
Of Secretariat.

I don't know much about this horse except that he was a great one.  *I'd love to have seen him run.
Loved the poem

I truly believe that there will never be another horse that will ever compare to Secretariat, he had a competitive spirit within him that made him miles above other horses. Running the Belmont stakes at the pace he ran and for as long as he ran and to win by the margin he won by will be a record that will not be broken.   Henry
