It's almost sad to see him that obese in the late 80s. I wish they would've exercised him.
This is my personal opinion, but Claiborne Farm really needs to reconsider how they keep their stallions. Secretariat had about 1 acre of paddock space, that's all the exercise he got. How in the world could he even get beyond a mild gallop? He probably was never able to get more then a good gallop in for the 15 years he lived at Claiborne. The poor guy could only dream about the great running he was able to do in the past.
