I did find a proofreading error in it; someone, somewhere changed the horse's coffin bone in the foot to the cannon bone in the leg, but if you can just make a mental errata slip, Ms Lifshin's vision of laminitis ripping his feet apart is tender and true, and the description of Secretariat's day of death seems accurate with the biographical details in other books.
Much of Secretariat's real story is open to interpretation or may never be known. Poetry is an ideal way to interpret the horse we will never forget, the one we thought we knew, and the one who meant so much--albeit something different--to each of his fans. (And still does.)
Secretariat's life told in poems? A winner by 31 lengths, just like its inspiring subject.
