VG continues to be one of my all time favorites...yeah I know he messed up the Triple Crown that year stealing the Belmont at the wire from Real Quiet, but I see that running style not only as exciting to watch but also highly effective in winning races and placing in the money. We see that style again this year in Candy Boy. Watch the SA Derby to see if my theory holds....that CB is the new VG!

Thriving in Turkey along with Powerscourt, Sea Hero, Lion Heart, and others. Bloodhorse article today 31.7.12 about racing in Turkey."Horse racing is a social need for modern society" said in 1923 and still the mantra with the Jockey Club of Turkey today. Recomnmended, though you may have to top up your red to combat the read and weep aspect.

  • travel_vic · Could not find the you tube that shows it, but they train camels on it as well, Think of an overhead devide (loosk like the Disnelyand Monorail) and up to four horses at a time are starpped inas it travles it circuit exercising them as they go · 697 days ago
  • travel_vic · I was at a medical seminar the day of that Belmont and really did not want THAT Triple Crown winner up there with all those that deserved it. We slpped into one of the lounges and I preceeded to tell all that at that distance VG would nail the interloper. Great fun and I made a few dollars from those standing by. · 697 days ago
Probably the best race of all time was VG's win in the Belmont Stakes! Wow!
1998 Belmont Stakes! Talk about a race! Definitely one of Durkin's all-time-best calls too.
1998 Breeders Cup had top field and his sustained drive in Belmont ended Real Quiet's quest for Triple Crown
