Krone still gets credit for the very WORST ride I ever witnessed and that is saying something after 40 plus years of races watched
visited him as a pensioner at Claiborne. Still had the look of eagles.
He's my favorite, I hated those rabbitts but Damascus was a worthy opponent. I saw Damascus set the track record at that time in the mud at Saratoga, what a performance.
Statisctically weight carrying is easiest when out front.
1:32 1/5 carrying 134 ponds ... The Good Doctor was unreal!
