How many of you remember...

I just finished the book Secretariat by William Nack.  I had seen the movie but sometimes I like to read the book.  Now that I have read the book I want to see the movie again.  I do remember watching him run the Kentucky Derby when I was in high school.  This one is the Belmont just got to watch him run!  And be sure and notice that he is running on his whip is being used.

I had finished the book a few days ago, and meant to look then to see if YouTube had his race videos, but did not remember to do that till tonight.  Roger and I have sat and watched them, as well as others about him streaming on TV.    Oh, what a horse he was.  I would like to encourage you to watch some of the videos about him...there is one by ESPN that is excellent. 

I get pretty excited watching some football games, but they don't hold a candle to horse races.  I am always telling Roger I missed my calling.  I would have been happy just taking care of Secretariat.
