  • animalkingdom137 · Maybe the issue with the pauity of Triple Crown winners since Affrimed lies in the lack of 2 yo experience that predominates three year old campaigns now. · 40 days ago ·

  • tmallios · Ekindy the only thing i can say about Alydar ,is that he was a great horse . The only regret i have is that The Travers ws his last race . This was a horse i would of loved to have seen run as a 4 yo . Not to take anything away from John Veitch , but i sure as hell would of loved to have seen the results if you only switched the Trainers on these 2 . The great Lazzaro was no nonsense,he went for it with aggressive tactics(See Bold Forbes). I always thought that Alydar was the more physically gifted of the 2 . · 40 days ago ·
