As much as I love Spectacular Bid and once had a mare by him, I think there is simply no argument that Native Dancer was the more important horse. I am a breeder, and as the grandsire of Mr. Prospector and the broodmare sire of Northern Dancer, Native Dancer is one of the most ubiquitous horses to be found in modern U.S. pedigrees. Spectacular Bid may have captured more headlines as a racehorse, but Native Dancer's class will remain stamped on the breed.
