Pressestimmen

"Secretariat is an elegantly crafted, exhilarating tale of speed and power, grace and greatness, told with such immediacy that the reader is lost in the rush of horses and the clatter and ring of the grandstand." Laura Hillenbrand, author of Seabiscuit

Synopsis

There has never been a horse like Secretariat. Winner of the Triple Crown in 1973 and record setter in all three racesan unprecedented feathe still owns the track records at Churchill Downs, Pimlico, and Aqueduct. William Nack, formerly the racing writer for Newsday and currently contributing editor to Sports Illustrated , fell in love with the horse the first time he saw him run. He has written one of the most complete, thrilling, and memorable accounts ever written of the horse-racing world, and its greatest champion. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Einleitungssatz
It was almost midnight in Virginia, late for the farmlands north of Richmond, when the breathing quickened in the stall, the phone rang in the Gentry home, and two men came out the front door, hastily crossing the lawn to the car. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

This book was originally published in 1975 as BIG RED OF MEADOW STABLE. I read the book when it first came out, and I thought it was one of the greatest books ever written on thoroughbred racing. I finally bought a copy of my own in 1989, just a couple of months before my visit to see the great horse in Kentucky.
Perhaps because I saw Secretariat just weeks before he was put down, this book still brings the tears to my eyes when I read it. It takes a truly outstanding writer to write about such a magnificent subject, and Nack fills the bill beautifully. He traces Secretariat's lineage and of the history of Claiborne Farm in Kentucky, long the leading breeder of thoroughbred race horses. He writes in depth about Secretariat's races leading up to the legendary Triple Crown triumph of 1973. He writes about observers such as Charles Hatton, who spotted Secretariat's greatness immediately and who called Secretariat the greatest horse he had ever seen.
The only flaw in this great book is that it stops at Secretariat's retirement. There is no updated edition of this book. Perhaps someday Nack will write the rest of the Secretariat story. He certainly wrote a magnificent obituary about him in Sports Illustrated called "Pure Heart."
All in all a great book.

It's original title used to be "Big Red of Meadow Stable" which gives you a clue that this book needed a little flash from the marketing department to get it to sell. For Secretariat fans, it's a must simply because it is about the only book devoted to Big Red out there, definately the only one still in print. This was originally published in 1975 and the rerelease did NOT include any updates, most notably the great horses he's sired and art he has inspired. This book, lacking material, goes into excruciating detail of Secretariat's owners' past, his workout times, and about each and every owner of his thirty-odd person syndicate. The book only shines when focusing on the horse himself--as brilliant and as compelling as any actor who ever walked a stage. And reliving the Triple Crown win to end all Triple Crown wins makes it seem as if it just happened yesterday. There are a few black and white photos, not many of Big Red

This is one of the most beautifully written books I've ever read. Like me, you don't have to be very knowledgeable of the horseracing world--this book will give you a lot of insight in words you'll understand. And it doesn't matter that you already know Secretariat won the Triple Crown--the trip there is an awesome one. You don't just read this book, you become part of it. I laughed, cried, got nervous, got frustrated, felt anticipation, and at times even found myself talking to the people in the book, who you'll get to know as if you've known them all your life. This book is for everyone, whether you're into horseracing or not. It's a story of love, faith, perseverence, patience, and trust. In essence, it is a love story, and I guarantee you'll fall in love also. William Nack has done great justice to Secretariat and the people who were a part of his life.

Von Ein Kunde am 7. Oktober 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
As a long-time serious Thoroughbred fan, I loved the book about Secretariat! I have it as well as two on Ruffian and one on Cigar. Wish more great horses could have books written about them, but I think horse people are a very select group and books like these aren't what make the best-seller list, alas! I watched Secretariat win the Triple Crown and it is a tribute to his greatness that he still holds the record for the Derby and Belmont. It is and has been a great disservice to this legendary horse to deny him his record-winning time in the Preakness. It will be a long time before we ever see another three-year-old quite like him--if ever. He captured the imagination and hearts of everyone during 1973 and many hearts broke when he had to die at age 19. I will never forget him.

This book is just great. Even though I knew the story of Secretariat and even saw him run and win the Kentucky Derby, there were a lot behind the scene stories I did not know. The book was brilliantly written. The book includes so much more than just the story of Secretariat. It included stories about other great racehorses in relation to Secretariat - the jockeys: Turcotte, Pincay and others - the owners: Penny Chenery and others. I found the love Penny Chenery had for Riva Ridge in spite of Secretariat's accomplishments heartwarming. There was an incredible amount of suspense and beauty in reading this book - not a dull page included. Secretariat has always been my favorite racehorse and this book just compounded my feelings for this awesome animal.

Von Ein Kunde am 9. Dezember 1997
Format: Taschenbuch
Secretariat lived for 14 more years after this book was originally published, which would have been good material for an updated version of the book. Secretariat sired several fine race horses (including Lady's Secret and General Assembly). He was the main attraction at Claiborne Farms, where many people from all over the world came to visit him after he retired from racing. He was racing's greatest ambassador. Mr. Nack should consider an updated version taking these things into account, particularly in light of his very touching article he wrote for Sports Illustrated in 1990 describing his life following Secretariat through his Triple Crown season and his profound sadness at his passing in 1989.
