Wise Dan is clearly the best horse in the country on the Turf. He has proved that for two years. If he was in Europe people would say he's no Frankel, and because he's in North America people wanna see the champion run on Dirt because thats where American Classic Races are run. Wise Dan is a spectacular horse and if he had beaten Silver Max this past year off the turf people would see his versatility and capability of being able to run on different surfaces...
Since after the Belmont, this horse has been on an absolute tear. Finishing in the money each race except for his race in the Sunshine Millions last year where he was pulled up. He didn't get to complete a full season last year and still proved to be the best horse in the country when the time came.
Win in the Gotham showed this horse has serious potential.
Frankel is obviously an amazing horse which can be and should be understood by all horsemen. But there is no way I could possibly classify Frankel ast he greatest horse of all time. He never ventured from where he was comfortable to challenge the champions of America. Now we'll never know how good he truly was...
Why are we comparing a horse who is clearly the best turf horse at a mile in Europe, with Bodemeister who is a great horse but still unproven against the best horses in America at a mile on the dirt...
