I am very happy for Big Drama. One of the problems I have read for Buckpasser as a sire of sires was that whereas his fillies had multiple crosses to Teddy, by and large his colts did not.
Racingmuseum.org has info on him. This is the racing Hall of Fame. He was inducted in 2006. Sounds like a nice poster that you have framed. Good luck on looking him up.
He was born in 1966. If you tap on his name on the site you are on, Horseracingnation.com, you will get more information on his races. Also pedigreequiry.com also has info on him. You are looking up Cougar 1966. There are a number of horses with his name and find the entry which corresponds to 1966. He was born in Chile so you will see CHI by his name. This is the one you want. This site will give you his progeny etc.
I believe he died in 1989 at Stone Farm in KY. This is according to TBHeritage. If you look him up under their heading: Grave Matters. It is a list of famous horses and where they are buried.
I think this article is spot on. I do think the outcome would have been different if Rosario was on Frosted and sat back and not pressured AP. I think AP would have won as the race would have played out as some of his other victories had. Taking nothing away from Keen Ice who in my opinion is a horse coming into his own now. My only problem is why Victor didn't adjust his strategy here. Didn't the connections of Texas Red say they were going to put pace pressure on AP from the beginning if no one else went up with him. I'm just surprised Victor wasn't prepared for this.
You are quite right it is a grueling campaign for a Lasix horse. Since AP was trying to duplicate Whirlaway's feat, Whirlaway's Travers win was his 32nd start.
You are aware Kelso was top three year old and HOY as well winning the Jerome, Lawrence Realization, Hawthorne Gold Cup, JCGC etc. that year.
A filly has beaten a TC winner. Bridal Flower beat Assault in the 1946 Roamer Handicap. Quashed beat Omaha in the Ascot Gold Cup.
Yes a TC winner has been beaten by a filly. Assault was beaten by Bridal Flower in the 1946 Roamer Handicap. He raced against one of the deepest handicap fields which included Gallorette, Stymie, Armed, Pavot. Citation was beaten by Bewitch as a two year old. Omaha was beaten by the filly Quashed in the Ascot Gold Cup.Omaha is the only TC winner who was not considered the HOY in the year he won the TC. That honor went to the great Discovery who beat him in the Brooklyn, setting a track and world record and giving him weight as well.
He was an incredible horse to watch. His jockey just let him run his race and didn't interfere or try and change his running style.
