Better than lucky ... Cannot think of too many Horse of the Year winners who did not win a graded stakes before their championship season. Well solved, by a very knowledgeable racing fan. You are this week's champ, but next week they will come gunning for your crown.
How did you nail this one down so fast, Mr. Harris?
First guess winner! Michael Harris, you did it again!!!
While I have big respect for what Frosted did on foreign soil, I have to listen to the fans -- ZATT's Star of the the Week, is ... Songbird!
You had me at Eight Belles and Rachel Alexandra!
Fair enough -- The Donn is stronger.
I disagree, these are graded stakes horses. You could say that dirt may not be the best surface for many of them, but these are not allowance horses. Does it get tougher with Chrome, Effinex, Keen Ice? Yes, but I don't know that any of them would have beaten Frosted today.
Great stuff, Scott ... Good luck on Saturday, and I look forward to many more editions of Shap 'Cap!
