The news of Secretariat's death made me realize how far removed I had become from my youthful obsession with horses, especially with Secretariat, a horse I had never even seen. It had been a long time since I'd even thought of him or how important he had been to me that spring. So begins the story of a young girl turning into a woman who found herself inexplicitly bonded with the horse that ultimately achieved the Triple Crown. Only Carolyn, who'd once wanted nothing more than to own and ride a horse, found herself not on a horse, but in a wheelchair and with few prospects for her future. THE DAY SECRETARIAT WON THE TRIPLE CROWN is a story of how one young woman turned tragedy to triumph, encouraged by her family, her faith, her horse...and a young horse named Secretariat.
