The big red chestnut has already won the first two legs of the triple crov.ii the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness in con- vincing fashion, and it seems only a quirk of fa'e can keep him from winning the Bel- mont. No horse has won this triple since Citation did it in 1948, and although there have been some who have come close, none has looked as impressive as Secretariat. In 1954, the Ca- nadian owned Northern Dan- cer won the first two legs, only to lose the Belmont. An- other Canadian owned horse, Majestic Prince suffered the same fate in 1969; and the sur- prising Canonero II was also humbled by the Belmont after Hie Derby and the Preakness in 1971. The Belmont, which is the longest of the three races is the most gruelling, and many think that Secretariat, because of his breeding might not be able to run well in this mile- and-a-half race. Still, others contend that had the other two races been as long, he would have worn them as impressive- ly as he did. Once again, Canadian jockey Ron Turcotte will be aboard Secretariat, and Canadians everywhere will undoubtedly be cheering him on.
