This filly was great. She won the Derby and placed in the Preakness and Belmont even after being whacked in the face with a whip in the Preakness.

  • icyhotboo · You've been around a long time LAZ, either your in or your out. I'm not sure since it's been 20 years since I had anything to do with racing as a business. It seems to me at least some thing change slowly or don't change at all. Have a good day as it's 3:30AM. here and a balmy 4 degrees. · 292 days ago
  • LAZMANNICK · Hey Icy I was up watching some of the Winter Olympics. It’s 3:30 here and the snow is piling up. Our problem is that there have been only a handful of days when the temp got above freezing and ghe snow hasn’t had a chance to melt. I particularly remember that ’68 Derby and Dancer’s Image. The trainer was Lou Cavalaris, a former marine who trained for several good owners, one of them Mr. Fuller. Cavalaris was as honest a trainer as I’ve ever seen and there is no way that he would knowingly let the horse race with a banned substance in its system. There are several theories about how the bute got there, but none of it could be proven of course. Have a good one Icy. · 292 days ago
This filly was the closest to have ever won the triple crown won the kentucky derby and placed in the preakness and belmont. Really should have won the preakness too.

  • Dressage3295 · I loved this horse with every bone in my body. She was magnificent, never placing out of the money I was so upset that she lost the Preakness. The honor would have been hers if not for Codex. This filly had guts of steel · 733 days ago
My favorite filly of all time. Her run in the Kentucky Derby was incredible to watch, as were her Preakness and Belmont runs, even if she didn't win.

  • LAZMANNICK · Thanks so much to all of you. As heated as we get sometimes I know that we are all friends in the long run and can count on each other for support. My feelings go out to all of you. · 862 days ago
  • AnnaK · Thank Laz for yet another GREAT breakdown of racing, I wish for your family, and for you ruffian, much warmth and love and and enjoy those horses. What would we do without these great fillies. They even named a magnificent sailboat after her. · 862 days ago
unfotunately she(Genuine Risk) wasn't around long enough for her true greatness to come out
Feb 15, 1977 - Aug 18, 2008 - We still love you, Girl.
Who will ever forget the call: "It's Genuine Risk and she's Genuine!" Just watched it on youtube, and it still sends chills.

  • smarty1968 · I voted her a 10. What she did in the TC races was awsome · 1250 days ago
  • mdracing69 · Genunine Risk was my first Derby. I'll always have a soft spot for her. · 1250 days ago
I started attending the races as a young boy in 1980, so I will always have a soft spot for Genuine Risk. And because of her, I have no problem betting the girls against the boys. Since I'm a MD bred, I still remember all of the Preakness controversy surrounding Angel Cordero (bully, lol), Codex, and the Derby winning filly.
