Bold Ruler has giving us a wonderful son...Secriatariat. He was also an awesome horse JUST like Secritariat. What can we say the apple does not fall far from the tree...
In your opinion, who was/is the most influencial sire of all time?
this horse's bloodlines are so spectacular. they are still around & have been so influential, & have been apart of so many great horses like Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Spectacular Bid, Bold Forbes, Gamely, Lady's Secret, Swale, A.P. Indy, Risen Star, Dust Commander, Cannonade, Foolish Pleasure, Rags to Riches, Storm Cat, Winning Colors, Master Derby, Summer Squall, & Caveat. its just amazing.
It is surprising that Bold Ruler was such a good race horse on the track because he was so crippled with arthritis in his spine that Arcaro would tell sunny Jim that he could barely walk after the race. Sunny Jim used electro magnet blanket on him before the Preakness and Arcaro was shocked at how well BoldbRuler ran that race.

  • buckpasser · Jay. No problem. Thought it was very interesting too. · 651 days ago
  • buckpasser · Part of it, I am sure is that he was part of such an incredible crop of horses. But he does get enormous respect for his stud career. · 651 days ago
Should be ranked much higher.
Nice horse.
One of the top 5 sires (in no order, my opinion), Fair Play, Native Dancer, Northern Dancer and Sadler's Wells.
Raced with top crop of three year olds
