  • LAZMANNICK · And the list of great horses racing in the UK goes on and on. The race was barely over and the first thing out of the color commentator’s mouth was “And Camelot remains beaten. Maybe we are about to see the greatest horse we’ve seen in well over forty years.” Wow. Frankel. Your fame is fleeting. Move over there’s a new greatest ever horse in town. · 739 days ago ·

  • ILuvTurfRacing · @BrianZipse, Much agreed. Provided 14f doesn't prove a bridge too far for Camelot, which I seriously doubt being the son of Montjeu, he's clearly head and shoulders above any of the rest of the middle distance 3yr.old's I've seen in Europe this season. Assuming he does go on to the G1 English St. Leger in September, and comes out of that race healthy, he could be a tough row to hoe for the older horses in the Arc this year with the weight for age break he'd get for being a 3yr.old. I just can't imagine Coolmore not sending Camelot to Longchamp in October to run in the Arc De Triomphe? He'd likely stand a better chance of winning the Arc for Ballydoyle than their older horses would, i.e, St Nicholas Abbey, So You Think, etc.., IMO. · 739 days ago ·

LOL, Camelot wandered all over the track and still managed to hold off Born To Sea by some 2+ lengths to win the G1 Irish Derby and remain unbeaten!! Really good effort from Born To Sea in 2nd place. Wasn't sure how the 12f trip would suit having Invincible Spirit on his top side? But he's obviously inherited a bit of stamina from his mother, Urban Sea, too. As she was an Arc De Triomphe winner in her day.
I hope Daddy Longlegs can take the the Irish derby to make up for the KY Derby
