No , it's DAN PATCH. the greatest standard-stallion ever bred. HE NEVER LOST A RACE and MANY HORSE OWNERS REFUSED TO RACE AGAINST AGAINST HIM. Leaving him to race alone against the clock.
Harry Truman as a boy had written a fan letter and Dwight Eisenhower stood in line with his parents to catch a glimpse of Dan Patch.
Dan Patch retired in 1909 undefeated as the owner of nine world records and spent the rest of his life attending exhibitions
Dan set the world record mile at 1:55 and it was not broken until 1960.
At the height of his fame in 1900, he earned his owner one million dollars which in todays Obama money is about one billion dollars.
Without question, Secretariat, "Big Red" or "Superhorse," as he was called, was the greatest of them all. The only horse ever to run the Kentucky Derby in under two minutes, the horse who set an unofficial track record in the Preakness, and won the Belmont Stakes by an incredible 31 lengths. Man O' War was great, so was Sea Biscuit, so was Citation. But Secretariat, who was airborne more than 30 feet between each stride, was the best of them all.
