User reviews about the book
Kept me spellbound from beginning to end. I learned so much about bloodlines and all that goes into breeding and training racehorses. So good I will probably read it again.

A great read. You feel like you are actually at the races watching that horse win a race.
Like I experienced the wonder all over again
By Chuck DNY
Growing up on Long Island and having access to the most fabled track in the world - Belmont - I followed horse racing as a 10 year old boy when Secretariat starting making his mark as a two year old. My Dad didn't want to take me to the Belmont in 1973- so I had to watch on TV. Reading Mr Nack's book brought back all those thrilling memories in a detail I could only have wished to experience.
It is a must read for ANYONE. Secretariat is as much a part of American history as the Yankees or the 4th of July. I enjoyed every word!
Wonderful read, very heartfelt and truly exciting! Would recommend to everyone:)

This book is excellent. Really brings the story of the Greatest Race Horse that ever lived to life. If you haven't seen the movie you need to see that to!!!!!
Great book,what an athlete of a horse, the story is slow to start and then gains momentum like a great horse race!
A Must Read Story
By Frank Steward
I am a total horse lover. I loved this book and the movie. It has the best influance on people to keep trying!!
Great Tribute to an Amazing Horse
If you have ever wanted to feel what it would like to be on the back of almost 1,200 pounds of heart running at almost 40 mph, read this book. Nack's description of Red's races will put you in the saddle. You won't be able to put this book down even if you have never seen a Triple Crown race. I watched the 1973 Belmont on TV and can still remember today the stunned sense of awe at what Secretariat accomplished in that race. See the movie, but then read the true story in this book. It is compelling.
Secretariat- superhorse with the biggest heart!
Could not put this book down. Engaging and almost spiritual, this book keep me on edge and allowed me to experience the miracle that was Secretariat.
