Nice piece, Brian. For I was a Silver Charm man, but became one after a loss to Free House. Their stretch duel in the SA Derby was awesome. I gained a lot of respect for both, but something about the way Silver Charm re-rallied after being headed by Free House, just to fall a nose short, stuck with me for some reason.
Thanks for the great article, Rick. I can't wait to see Silver Charm to thank him for all the great memories he's given me. My father and I were "all in" on him in the Derby, so when he won in such dramatic fashion, it created a very memorable day that my Dad and I still bring up when we're talking racing.
Happy Thanksgiving, HRN crew, fans & friends!
There was nothing denigrating in that comment. I was simply making a note of it because it's only the second time its ever happened. If he were bred in Hawaii, I would've made note of that too.
Matt, I know you're a Main Sequence guy, but I think Telescope/Magician will be ultra tough. Hardest Core would be my 3rd, only because he has more tactical speed than Main Sequence.
Don't forget some of the sneaky California horses laying in the weeds...Majestic Harbor & Imperative.
Just tragic. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
The sophomores have a strangle hold on this division!
As long as everyone stays healthy, it could turn out to be a more compelling race than the Classic, considering all the defections that division has had the last few months.
It appears to be that way. Close Hatches, Untapable, Beholder, Iotapa and everybody else.
