Great. Bet you're happy
Buckpasser's sire Tom Fool won the Handicap Triple Crown and his dam, Busanda, a daughter of War Admiral, won the Suburban over males.
He was horse of the year for a record five years. He never competed in any of the TC races, but was HOY and top three year old. He still holds the record I believe for two miles. He won the JCGC when it was two miles and won it five times.
Here are a few from the past:
Swaps set world records:
1955 Californian. 1956 Argonaut Handicap. 1956 Inglewood Handicap. 1956 Sunset Handicap
Discovery gave Omaha weight and set a world record in the 1935 Brooklyn Handicap and win by more than eight lengths. In the 1934 Rhode Island Handicap Discovery set a new world record and broke the world record previously held by Sir Barton.
I saw Kelso race on many occasions. He was one of the best and I go back to Native Dancer. One of the greatest turf writers in history, Joe Hirsch, wrote, "Once upon a time there was a horse named Kelso. But only once."
Yes I liked this guy too and when I saw the dam of Lady Aurelia, I thought he was her half brother, but needed to check.
So do I
I agree. Also noticed that her half brother Titletown five ran in Oxbow's Preakness. From what I read he was or is being retrained as a hunter/jumper prospect
Yes that's true about renovations. I read that too.
Wonderful race by Lady Aurelia. Congrats to Stonestreet and everyone connected with her. Only sadness is that her sire Scat Daddy is gone
