Great racing barrels of the sixties

The 1970s were one of the last decades when the public was among the general public dominating the public's commitment as it did in the 1920s, 30s and 40s when great horses like Man O & 39, War, Seabiscuit, and Citation that celebrities of sports sites are among the well-known cultural heroes. The 1970s were one of the last decades when the general public dominated the general public among the general public, as in the 1920s, the 30s and the 40s, The War, Seabiscuit and Citation were the sports pages from her celebrity to bona fide cultural heroes. Take a look at the two great stories of the 70's Horse Racing: Controversy between Affirmed and Alydar, as well as a horse that does not have a competitor – Secretariat

Rivals: Confirming Vs. Alydar

Although there is a natural connection between aristocratic lifestyles and riding sessions, the most famous horse races (at least in the United States) are ironically prone to snack-rich tales. Reinforced (1975-2001) is the same good example for this trend as anyone else. Exclusive Native and Will Not Tell You foal, this florid-born racehorse at the early races is considered to be the centerpiece – a horse that is potential but not a worldwide connoisseur.

As a serious competitor, a lot of poker-favorite Alydarra – the tough, stunning Calumet duck with whom Affirmed developed a fruitful Rogers and Shorter relationship in the late 70s and defeated him at the Youthful Stakes. (at its earliest meeting).

What he confirmed was a muscle lacking (5 pounds for his competitor) and the benefits he often had, and at the end of the 1977 he was hoping and future betting. Even when rainfall in 1978 prevented the workout in 1978, it recognized the weight of the muscle that appeared to mature at the beginning of March as an astonishing competition.

The 1973 Kentucky Derby appeared. Of the two horses the biggest was the 6-5 favorite, but the reinforced came to a strong start, which led to victory. Though this success was still somewhat undernourished, as the eastern sportswomen were calling their fascinating performances a disappointment or perhaps a good start to luck, even a victory – albeit much closer, confirming that Alydar's famous (but fortunately missing) was in its pre-season.

But there are three races in Triple Crown – the last being the 12 furlong Belmont Stakes. The big, long-time strongest knight Alydar was a bigger threat, and the race really unfolded as Alydar's coaches hoped – a blazing hand-and-hand duel in the sun. But this unprecedented pressure was confirmed by the fiery grace that could cause Hemingway's blushing: the last stretch of railroad racing on a rival of his final fight, and the win over Belmont – and the Triple Crown

Years later, the two horses he met again at Calumet Farms, where both were searched.


Full competition does not always get headlines. Basketball players, quarterbacks, even soccer players and Olympics will receive most of the glory, the TV biopics, the Sports Illustrated cover. But twice during the twentieth century, the horse was not only a media player, but a universal symbol – the galvanizing, galloping metaphor on the legs.

It was Seabiscuit first. In the early 1970s, as the country appeared to be a second depression, as civil rights began to port and Watergate as a slow dissolution, there was a Secretariat (1970-89).

In the earliest days to adhere to her mother, as most grazing newborns do, she recognizes a special horse. The names of his owner Penny Tweedy in the Jockey Club reflect this early feeling of his uniqueness: "something special", "Deo Volente", "legacy". All of these names were in use and were the secretary of Meadow Stables, who eventually proposed the secretariat.

In his two-year season, he scored eight in the first place after an embarrassing debut in which he suffered from the opening of the other horses (crawfish). This mostly brilliant departure signaled in the eyes of fans and speculators. The owners of the Secretariat dealt with a $ 6,080,000 record investment, one of which was that the breed race track had been completed and its breeding career started after the following season. Thus, the secretariat entered special bets in the three-year season, which had been one year to defend its mark.

The circumstances were special and they requested a special lecture. He gained the pre-Triple Stakes tournaments, with a strange exception at the Wood Memorial, which only (according to his owner) angered and increased his determination. He won the Kentucky Derby, while in Preakness the conquering horse won two and a half weeks on his closest rival. Now you are ready. Will the Secretariat provide America with the first Triple Crown victory for the television generation? Or it would have been a victim of an injury, illness, or an inexplicable weakness that caused her pain in Wood, but this time the piles had a higher heart rate?

In that case, the Secretariat fulfilled the viewers' expectations. But no one could predict, it was an awkward victory that was not only a big horse, but perhaps the greatest in history. At Belmont Stakes, at the final stage, he made twenty-day-long sunlight for himself and his closest racer. Then, in the absence of competition, he competed alone, extending this width by 31, while setting the world record to 2:24.

Perhaps the famous writer, George Plimpton, made the best of ESPN's Classic SportsCentury series: "He was the only honest thing in this country at the time, this great wonderful animal who" just ran because he wanted to run. "
