    +Teddy Lopez Where was Prove Out? Did he have enough wins in his career to enter the Kentucky Derby,, Preakness and the Belmont?
    If so his connections could have entered him in all 3, races giving Prove Out an opportunity to challenge Secretariat's, (well prepared), again.

    The BIG difference in horses is that NOW they are trained to beat the
    other horses in the race, ....... BUT Secretariat ran for the joy of
    running!! he started slow, but then he ran every split faster than the
    previous one the whole way thru the race, didn't matter what the other
    horses did.

    For the 109 who voted thumbs down, don't like horse racing ,don't watch it.M. Kribs Rolla,MO. Before Secratariet won the triple crown in 1973,it had been 25 years since we had a triple crown winner, that was Citation. I know my triple crown history.

    It's a shame Sham was the same age as Secretariat.
    Only 1 horse in race history could compete with Sham and Sham could not compete with him.

    Secretariat's time of 159 2/5 remains the fastest Derby time ever. He ran each quarter mile (there are 5 in the Derby) faster than the previous quarter--a nearly impossible feat.

    Well, it's Derby Day again, so here I am watching Secretariat again like I do every year since YT came along. In every other sport I ever cared about; baseball, football, basketball, and even golf, there are invariably dozens of youngsters telling me that today the game is better, the athletes are more skilled, blah, blah, blah. So far I've yet to hear anyone say any horse today can compare to Big Red. It must be KILLING them....;)) So let it go again, Red, and I'll remember once again the day we all saw you do this back in 1973.

    he was born with an oversized heart coukd process oxygen into the blood stream faster then the other horses big advantage seabisquit same thing. his time as a 7 year old and 50 races in his legs was almost as fast as secretariat would have been great to see these 2 in a match race at 3 years old two magnificent horses

    • Loren Montespino
      Loren Montespino 6 months ago

      You ARE hearing the actual call of the race. The OP added music to the track because it helps heighten the tension. He left the great Chic Anderson's original call of the race untouched. There are MANY other videos of Secretariat's Triple Crown Races on YT -search "North American Vintage Horse Racing" for one. Personally, having listened to the races without music many times, I appreciate the addition; it's more tastefully and better done here than in Disney's movie, which changed the race calls to avoid having to pay the original announcer's family anything. Chic Anderson's family had to sue.

      Hard to say what would happen to Sham in the Belmont. He challenged Secretariat for most of the way and ran out of gas coming into the stretch. But the two were far in front of the field when that happened. Had Secretariat not been there Sham could very well have lessened the pace and taken the Belmont. We'll never know. But I agree from watching the three legs of this Triple Crown that Sham was indeed a very capable horse in any other year.

    Secretariat really has 3 records here. The fastest Derby ever. No horse ever for a 1 1/4 mile ran every furlong faster than the previous & finally no horse has ever ran the last furlong in a 1 1/4 mile race in 23 seconds flat.

    The Teddy Bear will not tell you here that Kelso trainer Carl Hanford said in a interview that Secretariat was the best horse he ever seen. Teddy Bear defense was it was second hand talk. Well, it came from a interview folks. So much for Teddy Bears.

      Oh, where you been man? They have many other ways to subsitute for the whip. Ever here of an electronic stringer they have for years? Or, a simple pin? Secretariat was going all out from the beginning also, so there wasn't much need to whip him was there now? He went right for the rail which is the fastest route around any track and, go look at the freakin compition he had. How many times do I have to say this on here, sham who was the only real good horse in there other than secretariat, got hurt and, the other two were bums. One had lost 20 races out of 23. Again they have a few things they do use other than whips. Where you been? How old are you? KELOS' BIGGEST FAN TEDDY.

    I'm 64 now and was there that day. No horse has ever run from the top of the turn to the wire as fast as Secretariat did that day. It was breathtaking. As he passed under the wire there was bedlam in the stands and many were unabashedly weeping. It was a performance for the ages!

  • Rob Forrest

  • Cyndi Lukens

    One of the greatest athletes ever. He would win the triple crown if you ran every horse ever to run the triple crown. The fastest time in all three races

      TEDDYBEAR 11 months ago

      I told Allen Jerkens that I would have loved for prove out to been the same age as secretariat and, that Mr. he would have caught prove out early to sdee if secretariat would have won the triple crown. Prove out got hurt alot when he was very young and, had a nasty habit of logging in. After Mr. Jerkens got him he stop him from logging in and, put blinkers on him and, he kept him healthy. I think prove out would have whupped him. I really think the great kelso would have whupped him. Kelso in his carear 12 times beat 5 different horses that had won triple crown races! Those 5 years that he was horse of the year he was beating best 3 year olds, and, older horses. Unbelievable! Ed Bowen tells me he thinks kelso would have won horse of the year 6 times had he not got hurt that year. Hard to argue with that. He was something else.

    They won't tell you that sham hit his head against a gate and, tore to teeth out and, was bleeding at the mouth though but, they'll tell you one of secretariats' losses was because he had an abcess in his mouth! I'm not saying sham would have beaten him but, it would have been alot closer I think sham condition and, all only lost by 2 lengths. Go look up kelso but, make sure you're sitting down when you come across some of the things that only he did. He looked like a darn deer, weighed about 1000 pounds at the most and, won alot of them carrying all that weight. Kelso was and, is the greatest racehorse, They don't even run 2 miles anymore, Usually they wouldn't let a horse run 2 miles at age 3 but, kelso was a phenom he went and, set the record for the jockey gold cup in his first try and, many great horses had run that in the old days when it was 2 miles. Kelso is the only horse to win it 5 times and, I hope you're sitting down, holds the 3 fastest timings for it!!! The last time he did it he broke his own record doing 3:19 1/5 for 2 miles on a sloppy track and, then went a broke the record on grass againts the best horses in the world at the dc international when just 11 days after the jockey gold cup doing 2:23 4/5 on 3 tight turns for 1 mile and a half. 3 tight turns which are way harder and, tougher than the 2 huge sweeping turns secretariat had at belmont. Imagine how fast kelso was going at that dc when he had to slow down for those tight turns and, still did the last quater faster than he did the first! Kelso was and, is in a class by himself. He would have won more races had he not had to give away all that weight. But that's the great horse, the real great horse that gives away weight to the other great or good horse and, still beats him. Again quite unbelievable considering kelso looked like a deer!!! He was something else.

      TEDDYBEAR Year ago

      Man, get it right , he came in 2nd only by two lenghts, imagine had he not got hurt. The hell you talking about, you get it right and, get a life! Secretariat can thank God that was Gun Bow in there with him. Gun bow was better than sham and kelso was better than secretariat. I bet you don't know a thing about kelso. Live and learn!

      TEDDYBEAR Year ago

      No you're wrong, alot of people don't know that sham got hurt at the kentucky derby, it's not convenient for secretariats fans and, carear. Funny then in the belmont sham breaks down and, gets hurt again and, they don't report what really happened to sham till 2 weeks later! You really think secretariat won those absolutley fair and square? I'm not saying sham would have beaten him but, I would have liked to seen had prove out been the same age as secretariat and, Allen Jerkens caught him early and, I talked to Mr. Jerkens about this, what would have actually happened then in the funny triple crown. Yes it also would have been pretty embarrasing had prove out whupped secs' butt at the jockey gold cup, which he most likely would have being that he is the secound fastest horse to ever do the 2 mile jockey gold cup at 3:20 flat. Ofcaurse the great kelso holds the 3 fastest timings for the 2 miles. I don't think you know much about kelso. i know the whole run down on secretariat and, I think he would have had trouble with gun bow. Go look at the conditions man of war run under and, talk about a great horse.

      TEDDYBEAR Year ago

      Yah but, they make the excuse that one of secretariats' losses was because of an abcess in his mouth. Who you kidding? Prove out kicked his butt fair and square at the woodward and they avoided prove out at the jockey gold cup. They've got nothing but excuses for secretariats' losses. You get a life guy. Kelso was and, is the greatest racehorse. Secretariat would have had his hands full with gun bow, never mind kelso.

    Secretariat's last 2f in this face as a 3y.o., were faster than Dr Fager's last 2f in his mile record as a 4y.o. Beast. Surely the greatest stretch drive in Triple Crown history.

    • Ecky Thimble
      Ecky Thimble 6 months ago

      Secretariat was the bigger horse and was carrying more total weight anyway. As a 3y.o. It would take much more than 8lbs to close the gap he had on Dr Fager.

      TEDDYBEAR 10 months ago

      Yah, genius, fager was carrying 134 pounds and, secretariat was carrying 126 pounds. That doesn't matter, even if fager was 1 year older? What's up doc? Why don't you go look at how much weight horses are carrying when you compare them. Oh, and check how much they weigh. Pound for pound. Get real. KELSOS' BIGGEST FAN TEDDY.

    • Ecky Thimble
      Ecky Thimble 11 months ago

      thanks for your kind words Loren, I think Secretariat's performance have stood the test of time extremely well and therefore defend themselves. I think if you could arrange him to race Kelso over 16f dirt, Dr Fager over 8f dirt, Frankel over 8f turf or Black Caviar over 5f turf, he would be backed as heavy favourite in all of these events, even against great horses in their pet events.
      Also he serves as inspiration for any of us striving to "be the very best" in what we do. so therefore it's worth protecting his image from cheap shots - not so much for the horse (who now lives on another plane) as for the people he continues to inspire on this plane.

    • Loren Montespino
      Loren Montespino 11 months ago

      Thanks for that tidbit. I've enjoyed reading your knowledgeable comments about Secretariat on these videos by Wyocalboy. I don't understand myself how some people can derive any pleasure from hating on an animal's achievements. I've both enjoyed and appreciated your sometimes spirited defense of Big Red. My favorite few moments in his TC run was the 24 seconds it took him to go from last to first in the Preakness - a move I've never seen before or since, though I think if footage could be found, he did something very like it here in the Derby. Thanks again.

  • Christopher Browne

    Back in Secretariat's day, why were the announcers so not exciting?? Because the 10 horses that qualified to challenge Secretariat equals over 100 today, while only the best 20 can make the starting gate.

    I find myself re-watching these three full races every few years. Chills each time I do. Such an amazing trifecta—ending with his utter dominance at Belmont. They didn't make lenses wide enough to cover that destruction of the field. I love to imagine the guys in the production truck scrambling until someone said "Eff it—just show HIM!"

  • Alexander F.
    Alexander F. Year ago +7

    The fact that in The Derby, he ran successively faster quarters .... He was STILL picking up speed at the end ... Just unreal. That Derby race is almost like he was toying with the field, and the world, before just shutting them all down. When he boxed out Sham to end it.....just wow.

      Teddy Bear forgot to tell rest of the story. Beau Purple beat Kelso twice carrying the same weight. And he forgot to tell you the reason he ran the D.C. Int. in 2:23 4/5. It was ran on a .00 variant sealed track. That's rest of the story.

      TEDDYBEAR Year ago

      Gee hw fast do you think the great kelso was going when he did 1 and a half miles at 2:23 4/5 carrying 126 on 3 tight turns, which were much harder than huge sweeping turns? Some people say grass is faster than dirt, and, the people who think so, and I've talk to experts cross country on the phone, grass is about 1 secound faster, even if it is true, kelso did that on 3 tight turns which he would have had to slow down for and that would have sent the secound to hell. Amazing 3 tight turns and all that the great kelso still did break the record on that especially with the compettion he had in that race which was againts the top horses in the world! Kelso did that last quater faster than he did the first quater! How fast you think kelso was going for that dc international on 3 tight turns? Never mind that just 11 days before that he broke his won record for 2 miles at the jockey gold cup on a sloppy track! He'sthe only horse to ever do that stunt in just 11 days break a record on dirt especially for 2miles and, then break a record on grass. Jesus and the races he did it in! Kelso was in a class by himself.

      He was last going into the clubhouse turn, and basically ran the rest of the race on the outside. And still set a Derby record. Once Turcotte touched him with the whip at the quarter pole, he just kicked it into another gear. It's hard to see how this horse ever lost a race, but he did. Several times.

      ....oh, I was wrong, I watch so many races, thought the belmont was on. In the KD he was last.

    Of course all three of the triple crown races were great, but I'd put the Preakness ahead of the Derby this particular year in terms of excitement. There was just more drama and Chic's call in the Preakness is one of the all time greats. The Belmont was a fantastic finale.

    Watch this race and pretend Secretariat is not in the picture: then you will see Sham running the greatest, fastest and most dominant Kentucky Derby in history.
