My Top 5 of All Time: 1) Secretariat 2) Man O War 3) Affirmed 4) Kelso 5) Spectacular Bid 5A) Whirlaway
  • Ferrisjso26 · Citation belongs in everyone's top 2 or 3 at the very least. Whirlaway? Seriously? The horse lost almost half of his career starts(28 times). · 16 days ago
  • Sig Bouncer via Disqus · An All-Time Top 5 horse will have special things about him that separates from the rest. Such as unique records that stand the test of time. Whirlaway's Records Still Standing Today (Over 70 years now): Whirlaway is the ONLY horse to ever win the Triple Crown and Traver's Stakes. Whirlaway holds the record with an 8 length victory at the Kentucky Derby. Whirlaway has a remarkable 48 CONSECUTIVE races where he finished IN THE MONEY. Whirlaway ran 60 lifetime races. Most of any Triple Crown Winner. · 15 hours ago
It is NOT safe to conclude that the Boys from Dubai have given up on winning the Kentucky Derby :)
You'll always live in our hearts, beautiful boy
My picks: 1st-Maurice 2nd-Secret Weapon 3rd-Queens Ring 4th-Undecided between Designs On Rome/A Shin Hikari.
My picks: 1st-Lucky Bubbles 2nd-Red Falx 3rd-Aerovelocity 4th-Not Listenin'tome.
Dortmund returned to training recently. My guess is the San Pasqual as a prep for the San Antonio is the route he'll end up going.
