Young Secretariat

"The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen."– Frank Lloyd Wright

Young Secretariat was born in 1951.  He grew up in the Woodstock era in Southern California. During that time, he was influenced by his culture and the music of his day notably The Righteous Brothers, Beatles, Beach Boys etc. Although you might not picture him as a hippie; he certainly had a fun-loving and independent streak that is still alive today.
He didn’t play team sports in high school, as he did not like to practice. Not liking to practice didn’t mean he didn’t like competitive sports. In his teens you’d find him racing motorcycles in the desert. On the other hand, one could also find him driving his hippie, peace signifying VW bug around the town. Back then he even had hair with an accompanying mustache to boot.
He enlisted in the Air Force, lost his hair and 40 years later we find him with a full beard that is graying. Although he is no longer racing motorcycles or horses, you can find him with his unconventional, that he created, Jeep climbing over rocks and boulders in the Tahoe area. You point out the rock and his jeep will climb it with its deflated tires and powerful first gear.
 Just wait till you see an early picture of him. It is hard to believe that is him. Keep going my friend and don’t ever stop.
