June 9, 1973. Secretariat wins the Belmont Stakes by 31 lengths in a performance that has never been duplicated. Where were you? I was at a beach club in Sea Bright, NJ--northern Jersey coast, near Sandy Hook. We watched the race in black and white on one of the club's TVs in the hallway. Watching this amazing horse run away with the race--other horses not even in the picture at the end--is a memory I carry to this day.
