Dr. Patches was the co-champion sprinter of 1978, along with J O Tobin. Both horses obviously accomplished a lot more than just "beating Seattle Slew," but those performances were certainly crowning achievements.

  • Jackie999 · I think it's OK for me to say that Dr. Patches and J.O. Tobin belong in the Top 500 of all time. I never said they were Top 10 material, or even Top 100. However, they were very accomplished racehorses who did happen to beat Seattle Slew. They deserve a lot more credit than, say, Onion, because that horse only had one shining moment that I can recall. Even Prove Out deserves to be noticed and commended for defeating Secretariat, Cougar II, Riva Ridge, Summer Guest, Loud, Halo and Forego. There are lots of great horses, and very good horses, and I recognize them all without disdain or contempt. After all, not everyone can fit into the Top 10 of all time, and not everyone can be #1. · 1268 days ago
  • icyhotboo · If anyone thought about how many great horses have passed through history making the all time 300 should be considered a tremendous achievement and the top 10 horses listed by Bloodhorse are not necessarily the only ones that belong there.I believe you can go down to #40 or there abouts and make a case,Sunday Silence for one Buckpasser for another just off the top of my head.Some great horses are further down that list and this after all is extremely subjective. · 1268 days ago
Uhhhh...hello? Another horse who defeated SEATTLE SLEW gets ignored by jealous 'Slew' fans? Come on...let's get with it folks!

  • icyhotboo · Seattle slew 1:45.4 at 1 1/8 give us a break Mike a race in which he beat the great Affirmed.Jump into reality your so called great Flying Paster could beat Dr. Patches in a lifetime of tries.Your posting's are ridiculous. · 1269 days ago
  • icyhotboo · "I made the intelligent choice" so then those of us who who don't make the choices you make are retarded? I'm a very ardent supporter of free speech but Mike your post's not only get more ridiculous with each one they strain my support of free speech.Sure you have the right to make them but your attack on such a great horse as Seattle Slew just makes you look ignorant.Cut us a little slack Mike and show the other members just a touch of respect.Were not as ignorant as you make us out to be. · 1269 days ago
