Secretariat won 16 out of 21 races. Pittiful reporting.
Goldencents won the Breeders Cup race strictly due to an overwhelming speede bias. Would be absurd to give the 3 yo of the year to Goldencents.
His first four races were at Jefferson Downs, then one at Evangline, before moving UP to the Fairgrounds. I stand by my statement that it pretty unlikely John Henry's maiden program will be found...althouh I did mistakenly say Spectacular Bid. ;)
I looked back trying to find your name to add you on facebook but must have got rid of those notes. Feel free to add me or send an email tp email@example.com. Ron
Bigred51...(Jim Settembre) is more of a dealer than a collector, however, it brings up an interesting thought to who has the best collections. I can really only speak to program or glass collectors. I think the best program collection is probably a family of lawyers in NYC. It was started by a judge who use to send his baliff out to the track everyday to pick up a program. They have 20 of the 22 races Man 'o War ran in. That's a pretty good start. ;)
@andyscoggin...I was thinking of John Henry's maiden. Getting old is not all it's cracked up to be.
@ Mike in SB...have never heard of a Spectacular Bid maiden program. I think it was at Jefferson Downs, and will be a hard one to find. Actually think it may be easier to find a War Admiral maiden (at least of seen 2 of those) than Spectacular Bid's. @rockybudgetboa, the only large collection of ARMs I recall buying was from a very nice lady in Toronto. Was that you?The only large group
For what it's worth I'm not a big fan of Doug Felkins. have dealt with him in the past and will never do so again. Inmo, Jim Settembre who is bigred51 on eBay is the best horsracing dealer around. dealer in
