BALLWIN, Mo. ( -- Visitors are not allowed inside nursing homes right now as concerns over the COVID-19 outbreak continue, so a local ranch owner started bringing a visitor who brings smiles to the residents, while staying outside.

The visitor has a famous lineage, as he’s the great great great grandson of one of the most famous athletes of all time: Secretariat.

News 4’s Steve Harris has the story.
