does anyone know if there is video of the 1979 florida derby if so when your arguing who was the greatest racehorse of all time--- show them that race. there were only two times I got chills down my back watching a horse --- Secretariat at belmont and The Bid in the florida derby he was blocked 3 times almost to a stop once, franklin tried to go to rail and was cut off and cordero is standing up on his horse slowing down so bid has to go back 5 wide and rolls home you can see part of that race at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhqXgUVyZrg but it ionly shows the last quarter
I saw Secretarait, slew, affirmed and the bid at the kentucky derby and also the bid at arlinton park as a 4 year old, it was amusing Bid was1 to 10 favorite carrying 132 pounds read in suntimes where one person had a $100,000 bet on bid at the track- some guy is carrying around $100,000in cash. well anyway Delp had told track officials he didnt want anyother horses around Bid--- so for post parade Bid comes out in front of 40,000 and parades grandstand and than goes to other side of track. than other horses are allowed to come out. They load Bid in first and than bring other horses to gate when they open the gate other horses flyout and Bid just comes out real slow. Delp must have told shoe dont get anywhere near a horse. he was last going around the first two turns and was losing ground at that. you should have heard the crowd murmuring it was such an odd sound. Half way thru the backshoe takes bid 5-7 wide and within a 1/16 he passes um all and was leading going in to the 3rd turn. crowd on its feet and roaring all the way home Set a track record that day that still stands at arlington
just watch the florida derby that year
