A good list - well thought out obviously. I only disagree with your ranking of Native Dancer at #9. I am probably biased because I LOVE him and would rank him #1 easily - but I can't see him behind some of them, especially Seattle Slew and Kelso. AP fits at #12 just fine in my opinion. Good job!
I agree with you completely! And I am so sorry to hear that you have had to endure such abuse from some sad people in this world over nothing! That says a lot unfortunately! AP should not have been included since they had no intention of giving him the award. I for one will not have any further use for SI, but I'm sure they don't care as I am just one former customer....
While I do agree that as a horse he probably should not have been included. However, he WAS included and therefore as the winner of the vote, he should have been given the award. If they never planned on giving it to him, THEY should NOT have put his name in the voting!
If you thought the Classic was a boring race then I'm not sure why you are writing about racing....? It was truly a "classic"! The Dirt Mile is a whole different animal and is my second favorite race after the Classic. Just because Liam's Map went to that race instead of the Classic doesn't mean that the Dirt Mile took anything away. He had never been the distance and therefore his connections evidently wanted to send him where he may be better suited. The small field for the Classic was a direct result of the RESPECT the others had for Pharoah in that they all suspected they would be running for second at best. Small fields used to be common when running against the legendary horses - sometimes nobody would even enter to run for second resulting in a walkover.....
Is that a serious question? I hope you dont have a vote if you do not know how much more prestigious the Tripke Crown is than the Breeders Cup....!
The best the world has to offer is a bit of an overstatement. The best this country has to offer yes. Some good horses from other countries, yes, but not usually the best they have...... But there is a breeders cup every year (in its whole 31 year history)...the triple crown is not only much more historic but darn near impossible to win.... It's a no brainer!
My thought EXACTLY! If he doesn't win it, then every person who did not vote for him should have their voting rights permanently revoked because they DO NOT GET IT!!!!
Thanks for the info! Glad to hear AP got all the 1st place votes because he deserves them. I was not saying that Liam's Map and The Pizza Man weren't worthy of being on the list, just that NOBODY should have voted for them over AP.....
That was truly a great performance by Beholder. But what was with Bayern's jockey thinking - :22, :45 ? WTH? You would think he had never been in a mile and a quarter race before!!! Those fractions usually cause a horse to finish right where he did.... One race against the boys does not make her a shoo in to beat a TRIPLE CROWN WINNER though seriously...... My money would still be on AP!
