There are 3 steps to creating a digital picture: (1)Focus light (2)Capture image (3)Generate digital file The lens in a digital camera is used to focus the light into a sharp image. Many digital cameras are "fixed focus" meaning that the lens assembly does not move when focusing between far and distant objects. Inside every digital camera is an small electronic chip smaller than your thubnail that converts the focused light energy into electrical signals. Millions of separate light sensors are arranged on the electronic chip in a rectangular "array" behind the lens. When you press the shutter button, the millions of light sensors measure the instantaneous level of light striking their small area and send this data to other circuitry in the camera. There these millions of separate values are converted to a computer file format (usually .jpg) and stored in the memory of the camera.

The 1973 Wood Memorial, a tune up race for the Kentucky Derby. Secretariat was not himself, and finshed third. Sham, however, did not win the race, but lost to another Lucien Lauren trained horse, Angle Light. Sham was second. After the race, it was found Secretariat was suffering from an abscess in his mouth, causing him to not grab the bit in his teeth and take flight. The abscess was treated and he was sound for the Derby, the rest is horse racing history.
it has been tested... when man o war raced the dirt slowed him down by five seconds and when secretariat raced the sand/dirt made them go faster. and secretariats time was only 2 seconds faster then man o wars... but if you put the dirt into the equatuion then MAN O WAR becomes alot fast. in the end man o war was a much faster and better horse and not to metionm the fast throughbred of all time
Most experts agree that Secretariat was faster than Man O War. If one looks at times for distance, it is not even close. On equal tracks, Secretariat still wins by several lengths at any distance.
Ms Ham named him.
The ECOWAS Executive Secretariat is in Nigeria. * Executive Secretary: Dr. Mohamed Ibn Chambas * Address: 60, Yakubu Gowon Crescent, Asokoro District, Abuja, Nigeria P.M.B. 401
It was actually five different horses that played him. 4 were thoroughbreds and one was a quarter horse called Copper Locks.The two horses that were used mostly were Trolley Boy who won a 2008 Secretariat look a like contest and longshot max
Secretariat was 16.2 hands tall, or 5'5
Well you meet in the US in New York city They all meet threr
Secretariat lived at the stable with Penny Tweedy or, her maiden name, Chenery. the stable was called the meadow.
Two. Trolley boy, and long shot max.
Secretariat was born on March 30, 1970.
I believe Ruffian was better than Secretariat... because she WAS a filly, and she never got the chance to really show the world what she could do... i think if Secretariat and Ruffian had ever went head to head, Ruffian might have had a VERY good chance at beating him... she IS queen of the fillys you know. and Maybe she could have been queen of them all if she had the chance. I guess we will never know the TRUE answer to that question... *sigh* :(
They were actually distantly related. But.. Although Ruffian may have been the greatest race filly ever, it is doubtful she could have beaten the mighty Secretariat at his best. Many believe she could not have even beaten Foolish Pleasure if she had not broken down.
Most breeders agree that Scretariat was the greatest racehorse ever!!!!!
Normally, it takes an exceptional filly to beat a colt over distances of 1/4 mile or more. Secretariat was faster than Ruffian, look at their times over the same distances, and it's not even close. EXAMPLE:Secretariat's Belmont Stakes time was 2:24 flat for the mile and 1/2. The best Ruffian ever ran at that distance was 2:27.5.
On the other hand, Secretariat's own trainer once said of Ruffian, "As God as my witness, she may even be better than Secretariat." That's straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak.
4/29/2015 - Derrol, you are clearly showing bias against female runners. First off, Foolish Pleasure was not in her class. His main claim to fame was being a Derby winner. She was undefeated in 10 starts. When the breakdown occurred, Ruffian was leaving FP. She was opening up daylight on him. If she hadn't slammed her shoulder into the starting gate at the beginning of the race, she would have left him in her dust. When she broke down she was pulling away, which makes her loss all the more tragic. Foolish Pleasure's only advantage was he had better racing luck that day. The only way he could have won is if she'd broken down, which is exactly what happened. Watch the match race on You Tube if you don't believe me. He didn't look her in the eye. He didn't run her into the ground, and she certainly didn't break down because he was a male. To his credit, Foolish was able to stay with her longer than all the other fillies did, but he was lucky that day, she wasn't. The only horse who ever made Ruffian work was a little filly named Hot N Nasty. Ruffian met her in the Sorority Stakes when they were both two year olds. Ruffian was suffering from a split that day and Hot N Nasty was a very tough competitor. At one point in the race she even managed to head Ruffian, she looked her in the eye, but Ruffian refused to be beaten.
4/29/2015-- This is Derrol. Just for the record, the format seems to be totally messed up on this. I am not biased against female racehorses. Most of the comments in this body of text were posted by several different people so I'm not sure which comment you attributed to me which gave you the idea I was biased against female racehorses. I just posted the original question, and I was aware of the comment Secretariat's trainer made, which is what got me interested in the subject to begin with. As for there being a bias against female horses I'll say this. It seems pretty well documented that male racehorses in general tend to have physiological advantages over female horses. But there are always exceptions to the rule. And by all accounts Ruffian was an exceptional filly. Was she exceptional enough to have been able to beat Secretariat if they were to race each other in their prime? That's what I was curious about and was hoping to get feedback about from people who probably know more about horse racing than me. Thanks for your feedback, it's duly noted and much appreciated.
Her times weren't as fast as Secretariat's? I didn't agree with that. Are you aware that her trainer, Frank Whiteley, told her jockey, Jacinto Vasquez, to hold her back during her races? Vasquez usually let her run at the top of the stretch. Sometimes that didn't work and Ruffian would ignore him and still pull away from the field. The idea was to teach her to conserve her speed, so that she could relax during the early going, which would be useful. We never saw that filly's bottom. We'll never know how far and how fast she really could run. After watching Ruffian's victory in the Spinaway Lucien Lauren did tell the press "As God as my witness, she may even be better than Secretariat." I'd trust his judgement, as opposed to someone posting online who obviously does not know what they're talking about. Everything I've said can be easily confirmed just by doing a little research on the internet.
Sham, a horse who had already beat Secretariat one.
That is the correct spelling of secretariat, a term for an administrative governmental body.
The proper noun Secretariat was a famous thoroughbred racehorse (1970-1989) who won the Triple Crown in 1973, setting records in all three races.
2:24 flat, a record considered untouchable.
Secretariat's total race earnings were $3,316,808, the majority of that amount was from his Triple Crown wins. As a stallion, Secratariat earned far more than that.
Best translation I can give is, “that boy doesn’t know who he’s spanking! I will have to work with this horse myself!”
basically, Lucian was saying Paul, the jockey, is an inexperienced boy that should never be trusted to jockey Secretariat.
Yes, Ruffian won the Triple Tiara.
The Triple Tiara consists of the Mother Goose Stakes (which will be run June 27 this year), the Coaching Club American Oaks (July 25), and the Alabama Stakes (August 22), although the Alabama replaced the Acorn Stakes in 2003. Unlike the Triple Crown, where all three races are run at different tracks, the first two races are run at Belmont Park, with the Alabama Stakes being run at Saratoga.
And will whoever keeps editing this to delete this information give it up already? Just because you don't want it to be right doesn't make it less right. I'm studying horses professionally, and I've been a fan of racing (and Ruffian) since I was nine years old. Go read any of the books on Ruffian if you don't believe there's a Triple Tiara. "Ruffian: Burning From The Start" is a great one, as is the Thoroughbred Legends book. Both mention the Triple Tiara.
No, Northern Dancer didn't win the Triple Crown.
