Secretariat (March 30, 1970 – October 4, 1989) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse , who in 1973 became the first U.S. Triple Crown champion in twenty-five years, setting new race records in two of the three events in the Series—the Kentucy Derby (1:59 2/5), and the Belmont Stakes (2:24)—records that still stand today.

Secretariat was the son of Bold Ruler (a grandson of Nearco ) out of Somethingroyal . He was foaled at Meadow Farm in Caroline County , Virginia . Like the equally famous horse Man o' War , Secretariat was a large chestnut colt and was given the same nickname, "Big Red."

On October 16, 1999, in the winner's circle at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington , the U.S. Postal Service honored the great horse, unveiling a 33-cent postage stamp with his image.

ESPN listed Secretariat 35th of the 100 greatest athletes of the 20th century , the highest of three non-humans on the list (the other two were also racehorses: Man o' War at 84th and Citation at 97th ). Secretariat was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1974, the year following his Triple Crown.

In 2005, Secretariat appeared once more in ESPN Classic 's show Who's No. 1? . In the list of "Greatest Sports Performances" (by individual athletes), the horse was the only non-human on the list, his run at Belmont ranking second behind Wilt Chamberlain 's 100-point game.

On May 2, 2007 Secretariat was inducted in the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame , marking the first time an animal received this honor.

A Walt Disney Pictures film titled Secretariat is currently filming and is scheduled to be released THIS WEEK. The movie will star Diane Lane as Secretariat's owner, Penny Chenery and John Malkovich as Secretariat’s Trainer, Lucien Lauren .
