    Besides the sheer class of Penny and her awesome team, Secretariat’s victory at Belmont must rate as one of the greatest sporting achievements of the 20th century. Chenery’s style, wit, and love of horses is a clarion call for all of us who BELIEVE in their animals, believe in their staff, believe there is a chance to reach the stars. Secretariat was one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen who was lucky enough to get an owner like Helen Chenery. RIP

      Thank God for a lady like Mrs Chenery, without her Secretariat may not have evolved into the horse that he was, THE GREATEST RACE HORSE EVER. His victory in the Belmont Stakes was simply unbelievable, a feat unsurpassed in equine achievements. On that momentous day he would have beaten ANY race horse in the world, past present or any other. Thank you dear lady for nurturing this equine colossus and sharing his Herculean feats with a adoring public.
