Saez lost that one
He's still relatively untested... should be interesting
Might be his year in the sprint, won't be 5f this year at Del Mar?
While there were definitely those who thought that Colin or Domino were more deserving of the GOAT title, I don't know if I can see completely eye to eye on your position of lists. I think the lists serve the important function of making sure that earlier horses are not forgotten. Any discussion here that incites the creation lists is bound to end up with at least one horse being mentioned that was forgotten.
Horse racing has one of the strongest connections to history out of any sport, and with such short careers and such an emphasis on individual talent, I think the harm of lists is being exaggerated.
A good point in the end though: we can only judge these horses based on what they did and could do.
The quotes from Smith are quite hilarious. Just ride him like Zenyatta, yeah, no big deal... What a treat to be able to watch Arrogate today.
Management ran it into the ground. Just as long as it's not in Brockton...
Interesting article on training methods
Great quote. The Jones family changed racing in an Auerbach/Belichik kind of way.
