I've seen Secretariat's Belmont performance countless times, and it always gives me chills. What an athlete! I would also echo the sentiments for Sham. While watching these old replays, I've often remarked, "Poor Sham"--he's Joe Frazier to Secretariat's Ali.
Except that Frazier beat Ali fair n square and did it at a lighter weight and 5 inches shorter than Ali, ...As great as Sham was did he ever beat an uninjured Secretariat ?
