Secrerariat.com is delighted to offer the definitive account of Secretariat and his rise to glory: "SECRETARIAT"
In 1973, Secretariat, perhaps the greatest thoroughbred in horse-racing history captured the imagination of America when he won the Triple Crown. Acclaimed sports journalist and writer William Nack updates his narrative of the only horse ever to grace the covers of Time, Newsweek, and Sports Illustrated all in the same week. This is the story of “Big Red.”
"SECRETARIAT" chronicles a spectacular journey, from the thoroughbred’s remarkable season in 1973 to his death in 1989. The only horse in the annals of horse racing ever to break the track record in each of the coveted Triple Crown races, Secretariat culminated this astounding feat by winning the Belmont Stakes by a record-breaking thirty-one lengths.
Secretariat was the only non-human chosen as one of ESPN’s “50 Greatest Athletes of the Century.” His story continues to be a classic, more than forty years after its initial publication. The most well-known and beloved race horse of the twentieth century, this champion proved that the impossible is possible.
This most recent publication of the inspiring and finely wrought "SECRETARIAT" coincided with the Walt Disney Studios release of the feature film inspired by the book. Nack has updated this edition to include a new preface, Secretariat’s breeding history and race chart, as well as the award-winning story "Pure Heart" poignantly describing Secretariat's final days.
Please Note: "SECRETARIAT" is now out of print and considered a true literary collectible. Secretariat.com has the last major remaining inventory of this scarce book in stock and ready to ship. The perfect gift for any Secretariat fan.
