Sir Barton is sadly one of the most underated horses in the history of racing.People forgot that he won four races including the triple crown in a matter of 32 days and set many records.Sir Barton set some of these records while giving unreasonable amounts of weight away to horses like exterminator who he proceeded to crush anyway.Sadly Sir Barton had hoof problems throughout his career or he would have been even greater.Finially people keep pointing to his match race with Man O War in which he was defeated.People dont understand that Sir Barton should'nt have even raced that day as his hoofs were in extremely bad shape and was being run on a surface not to his liking.On top of this he was asked to gve away weight to Man O wAR.In a fair race over 10 furlongs with fair weights and Sir Bart 100% Sir Barton would have likely beaten Man O War.Sir Barton is better than Man O wAR he beat Exterminator and Billy Kelly who did Man O War beat?
I agree Count Fleet had the best juvenille season ever was assigned a record 132 pounds for the experiental free handicap.Oh and and he won the Belmont by 25 lengths in athen record time of 2.28.20.Not only should Count Fleet be in the top 10 he should be in the top 3 behind Citation and Secretariat
To Honor and Serve should be the 2nd choice for the Derby behind Uncle Mo since of all the Derby Contenders To Honor and Serve has the best pedigree hands down
