Before Secretariat’s record setting Triple Crown run in 1973, it had been 25 years since a horse had pulled off winning the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes. The next horse to step into racing immortality would only be four years away, as Seattle Slew excited the racing world with his great performances in the spring of 1977.
