A Celebration of Western Movies … Pardner!


“Secretariat’ was such a magnificent animal,
unbelievably beautiful and powerful.
It’s always nice to see something that close to perfection,
a reason to celebrate.”

Secretariat  (Movie Traiiler) 2010

 Secretariat’s autopsy found that is heart weighed close to 22 pounds.
The average Thoroughbred heart weighs 9 lbs.

That’s a lot of heart.

  1. I remember Secretariat. The real one, though the movie was good too. He was something else. Something you couldn’t invent because truth is sometimes better than fiction.

    Not really a horse racing fan, but this was truly remarkable.

  3. Beautiful horse, Secretariat. What a shame Chrome didn’t win the other day, what a dramatic story.

      I don’t know the back story on Chrome (have to check that out). I always root for another Triple Crown though.
      Obviously a very difficult thing to do.
