We all want to see this one on a bigger stage.
But, that's the "juice" of lively debate, it permiates all sports: Babe vs Hank vs Berry: Rocky Marchiano vs Muhammad Ali: Jim Brown vs Walter Payton, and on it goes in all of sports including horse racing.
I hope they ship her to So. Cal for a tigtener before she tries the best in the BC, why not ??
A very sad & tragic event. A reminder that both thoroughbred & harness racing are high risk endeavors.
Thanks, Sulli. Great track, BUT Keeneland has some logistical problems to sort out- namely, more seats, totes, restrooms, parking. They can barely handle Bluegrass stakes day, adding another 25-50% more fans will be a challenge. Plus-only two ways in and out of the track- major bottle-necks.
I'm not as knowledgeable on this as others who post on this site, but the modern breeding of thoroughbreds has changed. In 1946, the great TC champion Assault raced and won all three, then TWO WEEKS after the Belmont Stakes, he race and won The Dwyer stakes. He continued racing & winning at four & five ending with 42 career starts.
Great post. My first KY Derby wager was 1973 on Big Red. He still holds the stakes record time for all three TC races. He was a special horse.
The late great sports writer Burt Sugar said it best, "He was the perfect running machine !!"
A little perspective. Commanding Curve got up for 2nd in the Derby at 37-1. OK, Last year Dallas Stewart's 3YO colt- Golden Soul got up for 2nd at 35-1. Sound familiar? FYI- Golden Soul hasn't hit the board since. There was a reason he was 35-1. CC we will see next Saturday.
I hope he does better than Stewart's other charge- Golden Soul, who never hit the board again after his long shot 2nd place KY Derby finish.
