  • Jmom via Disqus · Good story. I can relate at being too young to remember bits and pieces of my first Derby. that was many years before in the 1960 race. I mostly remember Carry Back having a long flowing tail. What more can you expect from a 5 yr old? I haven't mossed but one Derby since. I well remember Alysheba and his battles with Bet Twice in the TC series. Reminded me of his dad and Affirmed duking it out in their TC series. The last TC won since. Maybe This year?? · 2 hours ago

  • rorschach1992 via Disqus · LOVE Sahara Sky, hope to see him claim his 2nd Met Mile. His comeback race in the Kona Gold was fantastic, great rally at the end he simply ran out of ground. He looked like the Sahara Sky of a couple years ago when formidable at 7f-8f races. Love a lot of these horses but I've been a fan of Sahara Sky the longest and he's my pick. · 4 hours ago

Mr. Charles 'the Bald Eagle' Whittingham was always my favorite trainer. He was such a class act and I loved how he put the horses first. He refused to run his horses in the triple crown races believing (rightfully so in my opinion) that it was too stressful for horses so young. I knew that when he finally did enter a horse in the Kentucky Derby it must be something very special. Sure enough, Ferdinand won (and padded my pockets nicely). I know it is too late but I just wanted to say thank you for all the memories and fun along the way from a fan of yours since the 70's.
