My favorite Marathon in my short horse racing fan history was when Afleet Again won it at Churchill Downs. But Calidoscopio took my breath away last year!
Oh sure he's run all over the place, D Wayne, hey why not let's just throw him into another. Let's just run him til he drops. Jerk
He's been over raced by D Wayne. I mean really - how many races has he been in lately? Every 4 weeks or so, maybe even sooner? Are they trying to kill him? Campaigning a turf horse thru the 2012 Triple Crown races? HELLO? Please someone can we get an update on him?
So glad he survived the ordeal of a Triple Crown challenge on dirt last year. I have nothing but respect for this horse. Not so much for his trainer.
Thank you for this write up! Risen Star never got a lot of credit. With a better trip, he would have been the 1988 Triple Crown winner. I, too, hoped he'd come back as a four year old. I think he would have been spectacular. Wasn't it Charlie Wittingham that wanted to train him after the Belmont? In his hands, who knows what Risen Star could have accomplished. And it would have silenced the critics of Secretariat as a sire!
I would love to see Shackleford go out a winner this Friday. He's been so good for horse racing. Fans need horses they can follow for a few years. He's a personal favorite of mine and I wish him and all his connections the best!
who won the 2008 marathon? you don't say here. thanks. talk about getting no respect!!!!
who are hero of order
He is laying this horse to waste. It's terrible.
She's a beauty. Look at that dappling!
