I watched Disney's Secretariat and really enjoyed it. I first learned to appreciate Secretariat when a scientist appearing on PBS' NOVA analyzed Secretariat's stride. He concluded Secretariat was gifted with a perfect stride.

We all love the underdog, fighting uphill against naturally gifted opponents. But, to me, this inclination must yield on those occasions where we can glimpse perfection. Beethoven's Ninth. The Sistine Chapel.

And Secretariat's win in the 1973 Belmont. It is hard not to get chills watching this footage.
