Holy Bull has lasted the test of time.....there has not been a 3 year old horse to decisively defeat older horses in 20 years......that is special and rare I these times.....he deserves his place rated so high!

  • Sully · I still think Ghostzapper's '03 Vosburgh was one of the most decisive wins over older horses in the past 20 years by a 3YO. · 420 days ago
I love this horse.

I am so glad Holy Bull has gained prominence to be rated so high........he had had a brutal catch me if you can style and was never gunned down when he ran his race ....which was so often. Thank you for your votes.

  • travel_vic · I am not overly impressed with Inglorious' trainer. She tool this one to Saratoga and ran her without a single work over the surface. She climbed out of the gate and never got her legs under her at 9/5. But then Royal Delta was in that race. · 560 days ago
  • SSilence86 · I saw Inglorious when she ran the Rachel Alexandra at FG. She was second best to Katmanblu that day. · 560 days ago
Creating a Top 3 chart, by decade and gender, over the last 100 years ... Plenty of intriguing choices will be made!
Darley has put together a great tribute video of Holy Bull up on their home page. http://www.darleyamerica.com/
His Holiness was pensioned today, at age 21. His Travers win was the stuff of legends...

  • travel_vic · One of the most significant race courses in the country, when I first went there it was parallel to walking in the Valley of the Kngs in Egypt....All the greatness that occured right there. I was looking up some old pictues and laughed out loud when I found one of E.R. Bradley sitting in the box right next to where we wathced the Alabam last year. · 772 days ago
  • ruffed grouse · I was stabled next to him in the receiving barn at Belmont the day of the futurity, Dehere was the big horse at the time . He got loose from his stall and I caught him when he came out. You could feel his power right through the shank and he was a monster to look at for a 2 year old. One of my all time favorites from that day on, his Travers was indeed an incredible effort. One of the best speed horses that could go a route of ground that I have ever seen. · 772 days ago

  • travel_vic · Trainer still contends that he was doped in his Derby run...Just out of range..DP = 8-5-4-1-0 (18) DI = 5.00 CD = 1.11 · 773 days ago
  • travel_vic · Like Chie'f Crown this one "got" 10 furlongs later that Summer via maturation, just not in May of that year. · 773 days ago
Holy Bull was one of the greates all time horses ever! He dominated his oponents and did so in front running style. A feat rarely accomplished by any horse. He was brilliant ans he had lots of stamina. None since him and probably never will be many like him.
Why is holy bull dropping so drastically in the all time rankings here.???

  • travel_vic · Have to admit, this one stayed at top form for a very long time...Consistently good bordering on great, but not quite · 879 days ago
  • amberflash · could say the same about Cigar and Phar Lap - someone always voting them down! · 840 days ago
The thing I love best about Holy Bull... is he never ran 2nd or 3rd. It was win or nothing. 16 starts, 13 wins, no seconds or thirds.
