What the Nation is saying about Dr. Patches...

In my life as a horse racing fan, the Meadowlands was a special place. For years a very good racing buddy and I went to the races at the Meadowlands every Thursday night. It meant late nights and long drives along the New Jersey Turnpike, but the racing was good and by today’s standards the crowds w...Read More

  • AndyScoggin · art.paradiso--Are you going to the Meadowlands for the turf racing? A few of the Twitter crowd said there was a decent turnout on Friday. · 555 days ago ·

For all of the great performances that can be found in the Jockey Club Gold Cup history, it was a runner-up finish that remains my favorite.Read More

  • Floridaf · What an amazing race! Exceller may have won it, but Seattle Slew certainly did not make it easy. I wish we saw races like this on a frequent basis still. · 841 days ago ·

  • travel_vic · The Slew crew were nuts....Recall when Slew O'Gold needed bute in the inaugural BC Classic. The ones who had screamed the most about its use, overloaded the poor guy and he was sick from the high dose, all to get him to that race. It was obvious mid srtretch that he had nothing in the tank anyway. Hypocrites who rad too many of thier wone press clippings · 841 days ago ·

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. · 1144 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. · 1144 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. · 1145 days ago ·
