this is an extremely underrated horse. he beat two Triple Crown winners & a few Derby winners. one of the Triple Crown winners being EXTREMELY talented, both were but Citation was great. he beat Assault both times & Citation 4 out of 5 times.

  • travel_vic · Not well known bur Charles Howard, of Sebiscuit fame owned this Aga Khan bred animal · 510 days ago
  • goblin · Hillenbrand mentions Noor, but not extensively, in her Seabiscuit book. Another aspect of Noor's life that doesn't appear in many discussions is the John Shirreffs connection. When Noor was at Loma Rica Ranch after his racing career, Shirreffs was hired by ranch manager, Henry Freitas, to assist with various duties, which included riding Noor and overseeing things in the breeding shed. Noor was the first resident of the Old Friends Cemetery after his remains were transferred in 2011 as well, along with containers of dirt from most of the tracks upon which he had run. http://cs.bloodhorse.com/blogs/horse-racing-steve-haskin/archive/2011/07/02/old-friends-awaits-noor-s-remains.aspx · 510 days ago

  • Sullivan · Oh god, did not mean to lean on enter bar... Sorry about that! Anyway, it is a laughing matter because the story goes like this (this is all oral, have not fact checked it): the story goes that my very distant great grandfather was associated with the United Irishmen down in Cork, and he was forced to flee the country. His son went back over with family, sold the farm in the famine, and came back. His son fought for the Union in the Civil War, and then met with some buddies. The family had stayed close with Wolfetone's gang and he jumped in on the chance with the Fenian Brotherhood. They banded up in Canada. Their place (here is the humorous part) was to conquer Canada and trade it for Ireland. They figured that they had all these guys trained for this and all these weapons because they all fought in the Civil War. They actually did stage a battle against the Orange Order, but Grant and Meade were sent by President Jackson to clean the whole matter up and they ended the war quite quickly. I have not been to any race tracks in Ireland before, I am trying to convince my grandfather to take a trip to Tipperary. We stay with family, so it is an issue to go so far from west Cork. · 544 days ago
  • EP Taylor · Good stuff. Appreciate the write up. · 543 days ago
those days, were the days when eastern connections didn't refuse to come west.
  • icyhotboo · If you want to prove yourself you go east young man not west. Like Blind Luck one of two very good fillies running this year. · 1428 days ago
as great as citation was, noor usually got the best of him.
  • icyhotboo · Only when he was old and lame and his owner ran him anyway. His record after his 3yo year season was 29-27-2-0. This is my 9th time at stopping you fron slandering this great horse I will continue until you stop you - - - - -. · 1428 days ago
Check the weight differential between Noor and Citation. Also, Citation's loss at two was to his stablemate Bewitch where he was not asked to beat her.
Only competitor to beat Citation(racing's first millionaire, and he did it the hard way) four times!!!!
  • icyhotboo · After his 3yo old season the great Citation ran his next 19 races LAME as his owner wanted to have the first million $ horse.As a 2 and 3yo his record was 29-2-0 this is from memory so I might be a little off on the # of races but not on the fact he ran him lame for 2 years.Nice guy huh? · 1521 days ago
  • icyhotboo · even though Citation was lame most of the time he raced his last years Noor was good enough to run with Citation on his good days and win also · 1521 days ago
