ARRRRRRRRRR! Is In Front Coming Down To The Wire (Video)
As far as names in horse racing go, this may very well be the best I’ve ever seen. However, it is not the name alone that makes this clip great. Much of the following 1:34 of brilliance is the result of some great commentary from the track announcer. We also should not forget to credit the horse itself, whose push from last to first down the final stretch made this one of the greatest calls in horse racing history.
If only Secretariat was named ARRRRRRRRRR! instead.
