Until beholder beats two fields as good as the met mike and the Whitney- honor code is most definitely still number two active horse in American racing now. Don't let the 'recent memory' factor cloud you judgement!
Year not head
Honor code has beaten the two best fields of the year so far. Hands down. Shared belief yes has had a short head but to put him as tenth best? A joke. He would destroy most if not all of the horses on this list
Great show guys! I am so torn on who I would want to win the classic. I respect beholder and love code and pharoah. I can't pick one over the other on my sentimental win. A win from all three would be excellent in my book- and I believe each would deserve to win it. It will be a great race for sure! I hope all three make it to the race, stay healthy, and all three run their race.
Yep it is still great honors. All I said was that it's a shame for those connections who could have had a shot at Hoty if ap was born a different year. That's all. Never said they deserved it OVER ap. just said they are all really good horses who could have earned it in a different year
I never said what a shame is was he won the TC. I was one of the few people on this site saying he WOULD do it after the AK derby and have followed him since he was a Two year old. Don't put words in my mouth. What I said was its a shame there are some other great horses this year- who could have had a shot at winning horse of the year had AP been born a different year. No one is a bigger AP fan than I am- but I am just as big of a honor code fan, and have a lot of respect for beholder and shared belief. And the three of them could have earned Hoyt in a year where AP wasn't around- I believe that are good enough. And yes this year has been great (again I already said that in my earlier post) but we have had lots of downs- lady Eli fighting for her life, the palace malice fans who didn't get to see him return to form, the retirement of some great horses, chrome and shared belief getting sidelined- along with firing line, but that's horse racing! But don't tell me you didn't have one ounce of disappointment this year- especially after some Great ones got injured.
Zenyatta, blind luck (watch her Kentucky oaks win), dialed in, honor code, Sullivan will tell you all about silky Sullivan, and many others I can't think of now after a twelve hour day
For everyone who has him picked to win Saturday- who thinks he wil be eased up again? And who thinks he will be asked to run hard? And who thinks he will run sub 2 min flat to beat the track record?
