Despite the inbreeding, Ultimus became a very successful sire. Standing 15.3 and weighing 1240 pounds, Ultimus was an impressive looking individual who looked more like a Quarter Horse than a Thoroughbred. He also had a massive 75 inch girth, which is the same size as Secretariat`s girth (Secretariat stood at 16.3). copied from Spectacular Bid`s Facebook Page.
