Secretariat’s Meadow – The Land, The Family, The Legend
On March 30, 1970, Secretariat drew his first breath in a little white foaling shed on a historic farm called The Meadow in Virginia. There on The Meadow’s loamy track, the red colt would take his first steps on the path to becoming an American legend. In 1973, he captured the Triple Crown, the only racehorse in history to shatter all three track records on his invincible march to victory.
“Secretariat’s Meadow – The Land, The Family, The Legend” by Kate Chenery Tweedy and Leeanne Meadows Ladin tells not only the family’s personal story of this legendary horse, but also the saga of an enduring piece of land where “an empire built on broodmares” produced an immortal son.
