Happy birthday, Superhorse.
The legendary Triple Crown champion Secretariat, the winner of the 1973 Belmont by 31 lengths, was born today in 1970 in Virginia and lived to be 19 years old. One of his many descendants is Kentucky Derby winner Smarty Jones. To see the performances of "Big Red" in the Preakness and the Belmont, go here and here.
