Will horse racing ever see such dramatic racing again? Affirmed controls the race, puts away all challengers and challenges from start to finish. Coastal runs a huge race, right there with the big guns at mid-stretch while on the wrong lead. Spectacular Bid meanwhile was in-tight early, rating off a slow pace, made numerous bids but still fought-on despite being defeated at the head of the stretch. Very cool!
