Who is this Saturday afternoon horse?

Probably the best horse to ever look through a bridle.

Big hint : Virginia bred chestnut colt by Bold Ruler out of Somethingroyal AND he was on the cover of TIME magazine


  1. Secretariat... who else... funny to see old photos or conformation shots. Whole different ballgame to what we see today. Nice shot to see as I have never seen this photo of him before. I have a nice one of him running in his paddock at Claiborne farms hanging in my livingroom. He will never be forgotten in my book! He was a Saturday Afternoon well as any day of the week horse. ha

  2. I came across this photo not too long ago, it may have been on the Secretariat website, not sure, but I loved it.It's so interesting to see what "a great one" looked like at that age. Can't wait to see the movie when it comes out.
    Thanks for posting!
