  • jmac500 · Smarty Jones was undefeated going into the Belmont and saying the stories are similar is wrong on many levels. · 65 days ago
  • tmallios · I would never say anything negative about Smarty. IMO he is the greatest 3yo to race since A.P. Indy. That being said,being undefeated is a very irrelevant statistic to a degree. In some ways it measures a Horses abilities,but after the smoke clears it is predicated by the competition you run against. The careers of these 2 could not of been different,especially as 2yos. Smarty only ran twice,Chrome was brought out earlier and ran more often. If you will draw parallels into their records,begin the countdown as 3yos;. That is when their maturity level starts to come out. Therefore,both are undefeated as 3yos to this stage and both have run Superior Speed figures consistently ,to that of their competition. Also both have certainly passed the eye test. They make winning look so easy,it is like they are toying with the others and are not even trying. · 65 days ago
Q of the D : who's Derby win was more impressive, Smarty Jones or Barbaro?

  • RichChatter · While I'm quite the fan of Smarty Jones, that's not even difficult. Barbaro's Derby was "sublime!" · 86 days ago
  • railbird33 · I'm going to say Smarty, due to track conditions AND I remember in the DRF program - nine TOUTS gave their picks- not a single one picked Smarty Jones to win. · 85 days ago
Although Smarty Jones retired a long time ago from horse racing, he was one of my favorite horses to watch race. So, I was extremely excited to get to race him again on Horse Racing Fantasy developed by Horse Racing Simulation LLC at www.horseracegame.com/. With our own opportunity to experience the thrilling sport of horse racing in the virtual world, we get our own chance to race any of several famous race horses, including Smarty Jones, catering to both experienced gamers and beginners.
This is the horse that made me fall in love with the sport. Honestly without his story and all the good things surrounding him I'd never would of started following the sport.

  • Sullivan · I will agree that KY bred horses get a huge leg up to PE breds although FL and recently NY aren't so bad either · 389 days ago
For the third consecutive year, Smarties foals have earned him 5 million in just one year. Not too shabby
Why does the hall of fame keep passing up this Champion? Its a joke really!!

  • kaitlinefree1 · yeah, but Smarty's only loss came in the Belmont. he also battled back from a life threatening skull fracture. · 498 days ago
  • travel_vic · there are many who "sneak" into the limelight...If Canoneros is not in, then this one cannot jump the que · 498 days ago
He is amazing!!! He is closely related to my retired race horse!!!!!! <3
He's got a colt on the ground named It's Smarty Time he looks really good maybe he will be the Smarty baby we have been waiting for... he is just now a 2 year old and out of a mare named "Time To Trick Em".
Ohhh boy im not saying hes gonna be great but John servis has a colt named Red Judicata owned by SomeDay Farm sired by smarty jones who servis trained. Let me tell you this colt looks good he won a minor stakes at parx last out by 4lenghts and thats cause jeremy rose eased him up 100 yards from the finish line. He looks great and if he fills out more could be sumtin. Look for him in the Pennsylvania nursey this saturday will be heavy favorite. Just go to blood horse and look at his last race hes 2for3 lifetime. Btw im posting about him here due to he dosent have a profile on here.

  • goblin · I saw that race--on the 18th? I agree, Res Judicata looks like he enjoys running; hope he can stretch out over a distance. · 585 days ago
I love you smarty jones you are a very good racehorse.Also you have more heart in racing then alot of the other horses out there.:)
What a great horse surrounded by great stories who came heartbreakingly close to the Triple Crown. An emotional campaign with personal significance for me. My father was ill at the time and this was the last Triple Crown season we shared together. The Belmont was the last race he saw (from his hospital bed) and like Smarty Jones, came up short in the end.
In my opinion best horse that didn't win the Triple Crown aind is the best horse from pennsylvania ever.

  • Armada · It was a safety pin that did the Bid in. And I think Afleet Alex is right up there, too. I believe his ride in the KD cost him the race. · 796 days ago
  • cocoa2 · Bid was injured with a safety pin, as well the jock tried to break Sec's record. · 795 days ago
Well Smarty Jones was undefeated going into the first two
A touching story... http://offtrackthoroughbreds.com/2012/01/24/young-fan-given-son-of-smarty-jones/
The closest horse to a Triple crown winner since Affirmed almost had a derby type horse last year before Rogue Romance was injured hope he gets a classic type 3yo winner this year

  • travel_vic · I can recall making a good sized bet on Victory Gallop too and was amazed at the final run · 907 days ago
  • railbird33 · I am certain Bob Baffert would disagree as Silver Charm lost the Belmont/Triple Crown by a head-bob to Touch Gold. Mr. Baffert also lost the VISA $5 million bonus for a sweep of the crown that year. Smarty- still one of my favorites. · 907 days ago
An inside look at Smarty Jones Triple Crown, with some terrific footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wIfGJKXNtU
icyhotboo, you always have good interesting opinions. Where does Smarty ran in the top 250 if he wins the Belmont
Smarty is my boy, i will never ever forget his Preakness.
How many on here watch these videos and when you get to the Smarty Jones Belmont you can not watch. I still get a sick feeling
  • icyhotboo · Nick Zito one of the classiest people you could ever meet was one the sickest and he had the winner, but thats what horse racing is about there are no gimmees. · 1060 days ago
Ok Smarty up to 102 lets get him where he belongs Top 75
