    This is the first time I've ever seen a Triple Crown.

    it was a great race and he stood out of the pack the whole way. I thought the other horses let up a bit at the end but maybe it was because there was no point in pushing them.
    let see how long it will be till the next one.

    A jockey will get fined for letting up/not trying. They were simply not good enough.

    Great horse and race. I don't think any athlete--horse or human--has ever had a performance like Secretariat's Belmont Stakes win. It's worth watching for those who don't know just how extraordinary it was: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V18ui3Rtjz4

    I didn't mean to compare American Pharoah to Secretariat - no horse, with the exception of Northern Dancer, comes close - I say Northern Dancer because he would have been a triple crown winner had he not come back home to Canada to run in our triple crown races after winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness - "The Dancer" is also the sire of champions and every great racehorse in the last half-century has Dancer blood. I was only trying to compare the way AP opened up in the stretch leaving no doubt. Most of the Belmonts in recent memory have had very close endings.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    He is a super athlete to be sure but he won't be racing any more. He will now begin a new career of providing millions to his owner through stud fees.

    Greetings, donsutherland1.

    I had never seen that Belmont win by Secretariat before now! Extraordinary! To win by so many lengths when every horse out there was doing their best was unbelievable! It looked like a one-horse race at the finish...

    One of the greatest moments in sports, that's for sure. Also, one of the greatest lines in sports, too:

    BTW, it was also nice seeing Penny Chenery there yesterday. She still going strong at 92 years of age!
