Secretariat was the best-known and most beloved race horse of the twentieth century. In 1973 his legacy was permanently etched into the consciousness of the world when he won the Triple Crown. Here, Raymond G. Woolfe Jr. tells the story of Secretariat from the coin toss that sent him to Helen "Penny" Chenery to his burial at Claiborne Farm, making this the definitive volume for fans of the horse and the sport of horseracing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fitting tribute to Big Red 17. November 2010
Von eehorsewoman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
This is a treasure of a book about Big Red. It is full of wonderful pictures, some showing off his exquisite conformation even at a very early age. The text is well written and helps to convey the endearing personality of this beautiful champion. If you are familiar only with his accomplishments on the track you only know half the story. His personality was the other half of the story. Secretariat was a real extrovert who was very attuned to people. This book is written in a way that gives you a sense of his personality and that is what I really appreciate about it--that and the beautiful pictures, of course. This book is written with warmth and respect and I find it a more enjoyable read than Nack's book on Secretariat which is primarily facts and racing stats.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Secretariat review 16. Oktober 2010
Von Thriller addict - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I have several of the big books on Secretariat, but still this book has a large number of photos which I had not seen. Many were candids of Secretariat himself and those people who had the opportunity to be around him. It added more color and depth to the personalities of Secretariat himself even though he is well known, his rival Sham, and the people on his journey from a foal to legendary. It reminds you that it's easy to see things clearly when you're looking back on any sports hero's exploits, but the trip was hard work and tough choices while the history is being written. So its worth it if you are a fan or just curious. Frankly it's worth it just as a coffee table book for the photos alone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfection in Nature 13. März 2011
Von Carolyn L. Cooper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
Why does Secretariat bring tears to our eyes ? A little less than perfection can make us smile, but this horse ("horse" is such an understatement)is so emotionally overwhelming, some of us cry. Although I haven't read the other books listed here, "Secretariat" by Raymond G. Woolfe may be the definitive book about this unique champion. There are details that put the reader at the scene and in the action. In the back of the book are special features: Secretariat's lineage (his bloodlines), his winning get (progeny), and biographical sketches of what happened to the significant persons in his life. (This feature of the book is especially interesting if you've seen the movie.)There is a copious supply of pictures, both black and white and color. If you buy this book, allow an hour just to look through it, then read it to relive vicariously the days of horseracing glory. I have the original newspaper page about his winning the Belmont,which I had considered selling. I think not; it's a physical means of contact over the years with a magnificent creature. This is a fulfilling book for anyone who loves horses, especially this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen fantastic pictures 7. November 2010
Von PF - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
This book is full of pictures which is what I was looking for even more than informative text, though it has that as well. It's a good overall recollection of a horse and the events that occurred when I was just twelve, but has touched my life forever.
