Older Comments about Omaha...

Omaha is certainly a coveted horse. We regard him as a legend, a triple crown winner on par with the greats of the 1930s. Would it surprise you to learn that on July 10, 1935 DRF published an article titled "Omaha Best Of Bad Lot"? Maybe things haven't changed so much after all.
I went and saw his grave a few months ago... It was pretty cool.

  • rafirox · Thank you for the info, Buckpasser. He was a great router on both surfaces. · 1270 days ago
  • Junebug719 · Unfortunately, there is NO more Ak Sar Ben race track anymore. Omahas bones were never recovered when they bull dozed the old grandstand down. There is only a marker which they want to move to a more suitable place for such a great horse. · 1270 days ago
actually snuck in a loss between the Preakness and Belmont , but the running lines in all 3 of his Triple Crown wins say "easily". Raced 4 times in Great Britain as a 4yo with 2 wins and 2 seconds. One of those seconds a nose loss in the Ascot Gold Cup.

  • Buckpasser · Yes he was the same horse cocoa that beat Seabiscuit in the Santa Anita Handicap. Best horse he sired was the filly champion Berlo. · 1317 days ago
  • Buckpasser · Correction he sired Bed of Roses from whom descended Berlo a champion of the 60s. He also sired Rosy Prospect from whom Peace Corps etc came from. · 1316 days ago
a triple crown winner!! almost all of them are underrated!
Don't forget that Omaha shipped overseas to race in Europe...while he raced poorly he still attempted a rare phenomenon for his time
  • larooski · Raced poorly? Raced poorly?!? If you call 2 wins and 2 seconds in 4 starts racing poorly, with one of those seconds a nose loss in the ASCOT GOLD CUP then yeah I guess he ran poorly. I'd say that's pretty good. · 1532 days ago
How come nobody talks about this horse? I mean, he won the Triple Crown!
  • JamminPark · I know and he is absolutely stunning to look at, I mean what a champ! · 1873 days ago
