|terri.drennen Those that are putting Zenyatta over Ruffian simply do NOT remember Ruffian! There is NO way Zenyatta would have caught her! Ruffian was a sprinter, a... moredistance horse, and a show horse all in one. We will never see that again. Why did we have to lose her like that is just like why did we have to loose Dale E. #3 like that, both wrapped in black, and on the track. No, sorry, the 'newbies' will put Zenyatta or Rachel first, but Ruffian would have run them into the ground trying to catch her beautiful self. Remember, only ONE horse was said to have better than Secretariate; and that is our gorgeous Black Queen, The Greatest Ever, Ruffian
|yukichan I feel like I've won the lottery!! I am one of 5 winners to visit the Queen! Counting the days to January 10! :D
|TimSmith It looks to me that many times in her career she was a bit out of shape and would finish 3,4,5 and then respond to racing a ton in a short time and pu... more together a long win streak.. The pattern is no differnet in her last few races..

|~RuffianQueenOfRacing~ no other 3 year old has accomplished what Twilight Tear did! 10stars!
|morethanready111 There is definitely an ignorant person who keeps ranking her and several other great 1970's stars down all the time. If you don't know what a great ho... morese is, don't vote.
|luvzenyatta 1945 Horse of the Year..wow. She was also best 3yo filly, best 3yo of either sex and best handicap filly or mare. Of 21 starts; 15 wins, 3 seconds an... more 1 third. She was awesome!
|Lisa111 Does anyone know where I might find more information on her? Books? I can't find a thing and I want to know more about her.
|MikeSek She was a great filly before she was a great mare. She deserves all the respect in the world.

|MikeSek Great! A 3.73 rating. Unreal.
|Thunder Gulch Those pointing to the bias at SA on BC day have a valid point, but I would counter that with the race Beholder ran in the Oaks being compromised by a ... moreizzling pace. All of the other speed collapsed in the wake of that, yet Beholder was there fighting to the end. That pace scenario was a much larger disadvantage than the BC speed bias, and Beholder ran 2nd, while PS ran up the track at the BC. Both have 4 G1, but Beholder has 2 vs older mares and the championship.

I fell in love with the sport quickly and have been to several races in person. This filly was easily my favorite horse this year, I hope she is able to come back in good form to redeem herself.

|southern.humor 23 years ago we were facing a very similar set up for the distaff. I remember the atmosphere surrounding what could potentially be one of the best fil... morey/mare races ever. Unfortunatly the results were catastrophic. Lets us hope we have a much happier ending to this climatic race. It should be a good one.

|kaitlinefree1 any more plans for her? or is the Doll officially retired.
|RamonDimas she won the BREEDERS CUP LADIES CLASSIC in a awesome performance!!
|airedale2008 Dark Mirage was a diminutive filly weighing 710 pounds. Her deaf dam had no ears and there was nothing but laughter at the 1966 Keeneland yearling sal... more when the race horse who resembled a Shetland pony stepped into the auction ring. The small package turned into a speedster, winning the first Filly Triple Crown by a combined 28 lengths. She placed second only to Dr. Fager for 1968 HOY in the colt’s record breaking year, bumping Damascus to third. Injured in the Santa Margarita Handicap when she jumped over a cellophane wrapper blowing on the track, she was retired and scheduled to be bred to the Good Doctor. Sadly the injury did not heal and the Tiny Tigress with the big heart was put down at age four.
|LarryDickson One of the best 3 year old fillies.

|buckpasser Couldn't agree with you more. Total lack of respect for some of the top horses of the past. Most horses today couldn't hold a candle to the oldtimers
|LarryDickson One of the best sprinters
|kaitlinefree1 quite the forgotten / underrated mare isn't she?
|LarryDickson Top Competition with more starts than we see today.
|BrianZipse Ouija Board's first foal, Voodoo Prince, a son of Kingmambo, won today in a one-mile maiden race at Haydock in his 2nd career start.

|rafirox In your opinion, what was the best crop of all time? I think 1970's crop was the best because of the incredible quality AND quantity that was develope... more. Secretariat- One of if not he greatest racehorse of all time. He won the 1973 Triple Crown, beating Sham, he broke the track record in the Kentucky Derby while running each quarter faster than the last, he showed incredible acceleration in the Preakness and he obviously romped the Belmont by 31 lengths will trashing the record. He went on to a solid three year old season and appeared to be better on the turf! Forego- Probably one of the top 10 racehorses of all time. Winning the Malboro Cup carrying tons of weight! He was so agile and flexible, he could run any race against top competition. Sham- Despite losing to Secretariat, he too beat the Kentucky Derby track record. He was a pretty good horse that could have won the Triple Crown if not for Secretariat. Dahlia- Very good racemare who competed against the best of the best. She won stakes races all over the world and unlike MOST top racemares; she duplicated her performances in the shed. Our Native- Was a decent horse with an ok record. Linda's Chief- Owned California from 1972-1974 and I've heard MANY experts say that he could beat Sham. Stop the Music- Pretty good racehorse and remains in many blood today... Forgetting anyone? On Bloodhorse Top 100, this crop alone has #2 Secretariat, #8 Forego, and #50 Dahlia. Pretty impressive.
|LarryDickson Consistently one of best during her campaign
|LarryDickson First double winner in Breeders Cup races
|LarryDickson Obviously good...Hollywood Park has race with her name
|rafirox IYO, is she the best progeny from Affirmed?
|LarryDickson Bewitch was allowed to beat Citation as a two year old as Calument Farm finished 1, 2,3. Set distaff earnings record.
