Creating a feature film is now being done primarily from written book adaptations. Failing to live up to the books that came before them is a common problem of these movies. This is for a variety of reasons, but most often because they cannot deliver the richness a book can. These trends definitely apply to the movie secretariat that was just released.Secretariat written by William Nack is one of the greatest horse racing books of all time. Nack writes the book beautifully and does his research, but it was such a success because of the horse himself. Often Secretariat is recognized as the best race horse this world has ever seen. The record he had and the horses he beat were incredible. There has never been a more dominating performance on a bigger stage than his run in the Belmont Stakes. The Triple crown consists of three races and the Belmont is the longest. Running in the Belmont is very difficult for many of the horses that compete in it. They are not used to running such distances, especially after running in two Triple Crown races previously in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. This race is usually the one that will eliminate Triple Crown contenders. Well Secretariat wasn’t any ordinary horse. Racing against his own best efforts and true immortality was the real race in the Belmont for Secretariat. A twelve clip is a good time for horses to shoo for when they run the length of a furlong. Traveling a furlong in around 12 seconds is the meaning of this common saying. Running longer makes horses tired so their fractions get larger. Keeping up the pace of a 12 clip at the beginning of the race may happen, but not at the end. Secretariat ran every single furlong in the Belmont Stakes faster than he ran the one before it. Most of the pack was still rounding the bend when Secretariat was crossing the finish line. Almost certainly, this performance won’t be duplicated in the history of horse racing. Watching it happen people held their breath. Learn the true story about the best race horse in the history of horse racing as it is told by William Nack in his book Secretariat.
