"Secretariat" was a phenom. He was able to run the times and attain the speed he did because he was trained by one of the best trainers in the world, Lucien Lauren. He also had the heart and the will to win. But he had one advantage that nobody knew of at the time. When Secretariat was put down the autopsy showed that is heart weighed close to 22 pounds,the average Thoroughbred heart weighs 9 lbs.
For the past 40 years (or so), a horse's heart is measured by a electrocardiogram, and given a "heart score". A score of 103 is considered small. A medium size heart is scored from 104-116. 117-120 and above is considered large.
Even though there is no heart score on "Secretariat", based on the weight of his heart at autopsy, his estimated heart score would have been 180. There has not been any heart score even near that size.

But, “Man o' War” had 20 wins from 21 starts. His lone loss, to a horse named “Upset”, came during his 2-year-old season in the 1919 Sanford Memorial Stakes.

Re: The Top 10 Dead Horses

Very true Gordo. I have an israeli friend at the gym. He goes full out on the tread mill..and I mean FULL out. And not for just a few minutes at a time. We're talking 30-40 minutes straight! Sweat pouring but never out of breath or exhausted after being done. I asked him "Jesus Y., how did you train to do that???" He said because of his large heart he's always been able to run that fast. Only way he can get it up to feel he's getting benefit. Was also a prime swimmer in Israel.

Re: The Top 10 Dead Horses

I members could better discern facts from opinion things would run much smoother. (I'm not sure if this is a fact or just my opinion...)

Re: The Top 10 Dead Horses

How did "Full Keel verses Fin Keel" get left off the list?

Because its pretty much well established a Full Keel is the best and only option.

Yes, and thats the same reason that a Beneteau argument is off the list.

Re: The Top 10 Dead Horses

What about twin engine vs single engine trawlers?

Or steel, vs ferrocement, vs fiberglass, vs WEST system, vs wood. And all the permutations of that?
