What the Nation is saying about the 1977 Flamingo...

  • LarryDickson · I also miss Marlboro Cup, Flamingo, Widener, Washington International. Michigan Mile and an eigth was the big event for the track. Meadowlands Cup became a dismisses race after Breeder's Cup started. I preferred the California Derby being run after the Santa Anita Derby when a horse could come up and surprise at Derby time, such as Casual Lies. I also remember when the Garden State Stakes was a big event for two year olds. Other races were run late at Aqueduct which allowed horses to stretch out over distances of ground. I particularly miss the races run at 12 to 18 furlongs. · 453 days ago ·
