  • larooski · One of the best performances in defeat you'll ever see. Too bad Affirmed's saddle slipped. Assault's 1947 Butler Handicap at Jamaica was a gutsy performance. Carrying 135 lbs. Assault was taken up once, knocked off stride and back to last with a furlong to go, rallied a 3rd time, squeezed between horses and beat Stymie by a head. He was spotting Stymie 9 lbs. and Gallorette 18 lbs. that day. DRF columnist Leon Rasmussen said Assaults '47 Butler "receives my award for the best individual performance by a horse in my time." · 1263 days ago
  • cocoa2 · Watch the Santa Anita Derby, '57 I believe. Best closing performance in possibly all of racing history. · 1263 days ago
