LIKE A TREMENDOUS MACHINE

Last edited Thu Apr 8, 2021, 05:44 PM - Edit history (1)

I cannot change the past and I will not ignore when champions do what they do best.

We are Secretariat, Covid-19 is Sham. Are we running like the Derby went, starting way back, almost last, or like the Preakness, starting last but now getting ready to take the lead in the back stretch. Or like the Belmont Stakes, up with the leaders early, soon to be in the backstretch taking the lead, and then going down the home stretch ,"moving like a tremendous machine.", putting Covid-19 and the variations away.

Part of the Sibly chart Pluto return.

challenged Secretariat in the 3 races for the triple crown in 1973 was named Sham. I didn't make the claim that the pandemic is a sham, but referred to that horse.

Sham was a magnificent race horse. If not for Secretariat he would have won the first 2 of those 3 races and without racing himself out in what amounted to a match race with Secretariat probably the third one too, to win the triple crown.

As I recall, in all three races Secretariat was still accelerating at the end of each, and his times have never been beaten after nearly 50 years.
