Secretariat was the Triple Crown winning horse in 1973. He still holds the record in all three races today! He is the greatest horse to ever grace the race track. He passed away sadly, in 1989. He was bred by Ms Penny CHENERY, who just recently passed away, on September 16th, 2017. The Meadow stable colors where Secretariat was born, is blue and white.... thus the reason for these colors placed at his grave. I wanted to share the blue and white roses, that our Facebook fan group placed at his grave site last year. Fifty Flowers delivered what was promised!..... Fresh and beautiful roses, and on the date promised! I would never hesitate to order from them again. The customer service is simply lovely! Nothing but the best, for Secretariat!
