Secretariat March 30, 1970 – October 4, 1989

ESPN Classic documentary about the American Thoroughbred racehorse.  In 1973, Secretariat became the first U.S. Triple Crown winner in 25 years. The horse also set race records in all three events in the series – the Kentucky Derby (1:592⁄5), the Preakness Stakes (1:53), and the Belmont Stakes (2:24).  Those records that still stand today.

Secretariat is considered to be one of the greatest Thoroughbreds ever. In 1999, ESPN ranked Secretariat as the 35th-best North American athlete of the 20th century.
