I loved Seabiscuit and have watched it several times over the years. After the success of Seabiscuit, like many, I was hotly anticipating the Secretariat movie. I was never so disappointed in my life. Very little actual racing footage and it particularly galled me when we got to see the Preakness (or was it the Belmont) on TV in the background behind the kids throwing popcorn in the air. We got to see more footage of people in the stands than actual horses on the track. My favorite horse movie though wasn’t about race horses. It was War Horse, a very touching movie. If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend that you watch it. It won’t disappoint.
For awhile it looked liek he wasn't going to get there. Then he turned it on with a final 3/8ths of 35.38 seconds. Another who we should hear lots from during the year.
Hail to Reason would be a good place to start. He has always been intriguing to me and IMO we don’t hear enough about him. Such a great two year old who broke down late in the season and never got a chance to show what he was made of at three. He was also a top sire. His daughter, Reason to Earn was the dam of Bold Reasoning who of course sired Seattle Slew.
yukichan congrats to you.
Here's my word of the day>....SHUUUUDDDDDUUUUUPPPPP!!!!!!
Okay Chevy.....I gotch!
And to think she was 4-1. After that, her odds would never be greater than 2/5.
What is unadulterated melarky? Why don't you just say you disagree and post actual facts as to why?
I believe they wear some type of ice picks in their shoes for traction.
They used to race on the ice in Quebec and I think they do in Sweden.
