There’s no question that Secretariat was one of the greatest racehorses of all time; in many eyes, including my own, he was THE greatest.

Today, almost 50 years after he swept the Triple Crown, no horse has ever run the three races faster than he did. He won the Belmont Stakes by an incredible 31 lengths. When he went to stud, there were unrealistic expectations that he would duplicate himself through his offspring.


But that was impossible – he was a freak, so beyond the norm that balance in the universe inevitably had to be restored. Still, he came close with two outstanding champions, Lady’s Secret and Risen Star.


Many in the industry, however, think that a stallion must become a “sire of sires” in order to be considered successful, no matter what else he accomplishes. That was one area in which Secretariat did indeed fall short, but he overcompensated with two daughters who produced two of the greatest stallions of all time – A. P. Indy and Storm Cat.


Secretariat’s Legacy is a book that tells the story of Secretariat’s top offspring – from stakes winners like Lady’s Secret, Risen Star, General Assembly, Tinners Way and Kingston Rule, to important daughters like Terlingua, Weekend Surprise, Secrettame and Six Crowns. And plenty more.


The book also contains the largest collection of photos ever assembled of Secretariat’s stakes winners and other important offspring, gathered from around the world.

It is a work I was meant to produce to honor the greatest of all time, as my own love affair with Secretariat never wavered.


Secretariat’s Legacy is coming in early 2023, just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Great One’s Triple Crown!
