  • 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. · 656 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. · 656 days ago ·

  • medlocke · I think Treasure Beach is a much better horse than the "so-called experts" gave him credit for being. If Mikhail Barzelona mistimes his ride at Epsom on Pour Moi by even a second, we're looking at a dual Derby winner in Treasure Beach. And if history has taught us anything, it's that only special 3yr.old colt's win both the Epsom and Irish Derbies. I.E., Shergar and Galileo both spring to mind immediately as having won both, along with the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes. · 1025 days ago ·
  • skipaway2000 · Do you know the story behind Memphis Tennessee's name? That's my hometown, and there has got to be a reason this colt carries that very specific place as his name! · 1022 days ago ·
