Well, the race that took Man O' War down, that Secretariat scored over Linda's Chief, that Afleet Alex made himself known in will be a G3 next year. That sucks.
Mr. Pletcher looks as though he is sitting on the goods in tommorrowa sanford stake with All In Blue. He was scary good his first time out.Absolutely on cruise control.who knows how much faster he could of gone if javier asked him. will be very tough to beat here.
“There were seven horses in the Sanford, with Man o’ War held at 11 to 20 odds, but, when the field bounced away, it was *Golden Broom setting the pace with Upset on the outside just a neck away. Man o’ War didn’t make his bid until we hit the turn, and then he churned up along the rail ‘til his head bobbed into the corner of my eye. There he was tossin’ those twenty-eight foot strides of his an’ tryin’ to squeeze on the inside of *Golden Broom and Upset. If I’d given so much as an inch, the race would have been as good as over, but jockeys don’t ride that way. I could have breezed past *Golden Broom anytime I took my feet out of the dashboard, but that would also have left Man o’ War out of his mousetrap, and he'd have whooshed past us in half a dozen strides. When Johnny Loftus, ridin’ Man o’ War, saw we weren’t going to open up, there was only one thing left for him to do. He pulled up sharply and ducked to the outside. That’s what I’d been waiting for. That same moment I gunned Upset with my bat and galloped to the top in a pair of jumps. Man o’ War then had to come out around the two of us, and it cost him all o’ two lengths. From there to the finish he was chargin’ again like a jet plane but Upset had just enough left to push his head down in front. Sure, I won the race all right – it was the greatest thrill of my life – but lookin’ back at it now, there’s sure one horse which shoulda retired undefeated. Never was a colt like him. He could do anything and do it better than any horse that ever lived. If I’d moved over just an eyelash that day at Saratoga, he’d have beat me from here to Jalopy. Sometimes I’m sorry I didn’t do it.” Willy Knapp Hall of Fame jockey and the rider of Upset, the only horse to beat Man o’ War, and rider of the great Exterminator

  • TampaBayDowns Fan · I actually used that book to get research for my report on MOW. Any other book suggestions you would like to share, buck? · 811 days ago
  • buckpasser · If you can find the book. It is called Boots and Saddles. It is the story of the Ross stable who owned Sir Barton. It is written by Ross' s son and has the Sir Barton side of the match race. David Alexander's book A Sound of Horses is a great book. There is also Giants of the Turf about the great racing dynasties. One of my favorites is Wink about the jockey Jimmy Winkfield. It is still in print and available from Amazon. · 811 days ago
