Until then Secretariat Dancer will continue racing in the claiming ranks, where the competition is light but where he could also be claimed by another trainer at any time. Brill isn't worried. "Nobody's going to take an old horse with legs like this," she says from her seat next to Secretariat Dancer's stall, where the horse has his front legs planted in a tub of ice. "He'll run until he tells us he's had enough. He'll make a great riding horse."
For now, Sexy has a pet goat, Nicholas, to keep him company, all the carrots he wants and the love of a good woman.
