Yeah, since he ran like an Egyptian someone can pull his brain thru his nose and put it on display at the Luxor. Wonder how many people that bet against him would like to see that?

Don't want to diminish the greatness of AP. He's a great champion. But to put Secretariat's legend in perspective: AP did it in 26.65. Secretariat did it in 2:24. Secretariat would have beaten him by 13 lengths.

If AP would have ran the Belmont 3 seconds faster, people would say the track was just running real fast that day and Secretariat is still better.

I don't claim to know a lot about horse racing. But it seems nobody seriously challenged AP in the Belmont, so he had nobody to chase down with him leading wire to wire, and I don't know how much a horse knows about how close they are. AP appeared to me to not really leg it out until the end of the backstretch, when he kind of laid his ears down and hit the gas; I just wonder how much more he might have had in the tank if he'd seen another horse near him to compete with. They were saying, personality-wise, AP is gregarious and almost arrogant, and I kind of think he might've had more if he'd had to really dig deep, but then Secretariat was faced with similar that-much-better than anybody issues; was he ever seriously challenged? It would've been an amazing matchup no matter which way it was.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Secretariat, like AP, had a loss early in his career. IIRC, the only Triple Crown winner not to have lost before the TC was Seattle Slew. (Affirmed lost two races to Alydar as a 2-year-old.)

Secretariat at his best would most certainly defeat American Pharoah. But I don't think you can just dismiss Pharoah by saying "he's no Secretariat". Let the rest of Pharoah's career play out first.

Secretartiat got to run to heroic music which is a big advantage.

Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?
