DOSWELL, Va. – This month marks 50 years since the greatest race horse of all time was born. Secretariat was born March 30, 1970 at Meadow Stable at what is now called The Meadow Event Park. On Saturday, March 28, his birthplace will be the site of the official Secretariat 50th Birthday Celebration. Our host, Bill Bevins, visited The Meadow Event Park to talk with Leeanne Meadows Ladin, Secretariat Tourism Manager/Historian, about the upcoming festivities.
