Secretariat Wins The Triple Crown - 1973

Saturday, June 9, 2007

Trained by Lucien Laurin and ridden by Ron Turcotte, Secretariat won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes in 1973.

Then, on 9th June 1973, Secretariat won the Belmont Stakes by an amazing 25 lengths to become only the ninth horse in history, and first in 25 years, to capture the Triple Crown.

He set record times for the Kentucky Derby (1 min 59·4 s for 1¼ mi, 1973) and Belmont Stakes (2 min 24 s for 1½ mi, 1973) producing runs thoroughbred racing lovers will continue to remember as classics for generations to come.
