Rafi you ever get the book on Nashua?
Does anyone know of quality books written about Nashua? I do not know much about him and I would like to learn about him. Thanks in advance.

  • SSilence86 · I just read a quick overview on the Woodward saga. What a tragic family legacy. · 284 days ago
  • buckpasser · SS. It was a tragic family without a doubt. · 284 days ago
Three, 10 furlong match races, with each race spaced 10 days apart. Who wins the series? Nashua or Citation?

  • jmcleav · When Citation was sound he was almost unbeatable, I stick with that. · 740 days ago
  • LAZMANNICK · A lot of people talk about that great group of three year olds in 1957 but that 1955 group of three year olds was really great too. · 740 days ago
I know Swaps wasn't at his best in their match race but that's doesn't mean Nashua should be #49. Shouldn't he be ranked higher?
  • travel_vic · Fitzsimmons complaint about Nashua was that he JUST won and put out not a single bit of extra effort · 880 days ago
  • larooski · Champion 2yo in 1954. Champion 3yo and HOY in 1955 when he won the Flamingo, Florida Derby, Arlington Classic, Wood Memorial, Dwyer, Preakness, Belmont, the Match Race with Swaps and JCGC and was 2nd in the KY Derby. I'll take it. · 880 days ago
His match race against Swaps showed only a match between riders, but not between horses. He was a good horse who deserves his name among Round Table, Damascus and Dr.Fager.
  • icyhotboo · Swaps was kept on the outside in the deep track which beat him not Nashua. No different than Blame and Z... · 1040 days ago
  • footlick · If I remember reading correctly, Swaps was basically running on three legs. He was lame the morning of the race and his connections refused to scratch him. I could be mistaken, though. · 1039 days ago
Nashua-1955 Horse of the Year and probably best known for his win in the Great Match Race against Swaps, the horse who had beaten him in the Kentucky Derby. I have just completed his past performance history and with a record of 30-22-4-1, Nashua was a truly amazing thoroughbred. I've include the video's I could find, if you have more please add them in.
