What is the Secretariat Effect?

The Secretariat Effect is a term that I’ve coined to explain the following.

It’s the idea that your greatness is measured by the  distance between you and your competition. If you aren’t great, fear not, just make your competition appear to be worse than they are and the margin of your vicotry will appear impressive.

As in, Secretariat’s famous victory wasn’t impressive because he won a race, it was the fact that he beat the other horses by 20 lengths. He might have been slow as fuck, but the visuals of it made him seem like a stud.
