Animal Kingdom as done extremely well. I will not give the best horse in the world accolade as long as Black Caviar is still racing. But maybe after Ascot i will change my mind and then of course he will have to cross paths at some time with St Nicholas Abbey. Thats due to the fact that after winning at Royal Ascot the urge to run in the King George will crop up in Australian minds.
Time to consider that the KD is a two bit race. It is the pinnacle race in the USA. Foreigners ignore it. The Sheik dabbles occasionally and black type awarded to the winner is worthless.
This just seems stupid to me. A horse as to win dollars to get in a race. Why not change it to a entry system of $10,000 a month from October and those left run in the race. The prize fund will raise to something like $5million and all the late acheivers get to race. Or just pass the the race come to English Derby and get slammed by Frankel
The Kentucky Derby deserves all the hype it can get. It is the race to win in the USA. Maybe an older horse championship should be devised, something on the lines of the King George in England and obviously allowing the 3yos to enter.
All these horses are American?. Greatest horses of all time suggests exactly what it says. Try Sea Bird II, Mill Reef, Sir Ivor, Nijinsky, Brigadier Gerard, Dancing Brave, Troy & Shergar
