Secretariat’s Grandson Blows Out His Birthday Candles In Adorable Video

February 07, 2018

Secretariat was a famous racehorse in his time and was so well-loved that, even now, he is remembered fondly by all. There was no racehorse quite like the wonderful Secretariat, who always knew just how to win a race.

Due to Secretariat’s fame, he was chosen to be the father to many foals that owners desperately hoped would be the next champion. Even though he passed away in 1989, everyone still loves to see his name on Pedigrees of Thoroughbreds.

Southside, or J.D. as his friends know him, is the grandson of Secretariat who certainly doesn’t embody the speed this grandfather had. However, he is a wonderful horse who has earned himself a loving home at Ithilien Stables outside of New York City.

When J.D.’s birthday rolled around, they decided it was time to help him celebrate it the best way possible! With the help of Snaks 5th AvenChew, they were able to provide him with his very own BirthNeigh Cake!

They sang to J.D. for his birthday, but never expected him to enjoy it as much as he did! When they finished singing to him, they held up the cake with it’s lit candles for him to inspect.

With a lift of his lip and a blast from his nose, he managed to blow out his candles! His loving owners and handlers were full of laughter as they watched him enjoy his birthday. J.D. may not be a very fast horse but he is truly a superstar!
