That was such a great a great race. Daneream, Nathaniel, St. Nick... a really vintage renewal of the King George. 2017 has been a bit of a meh year for European racing. Highland Reel and Enable are both terrific, but almost every class is lacking a real superstar. Yes, great, great race. Danedream ...

I can't believe I misunderstood this year's contest. I thought the goal this year was to come up with the horses with the lowest finish. And, I sure did that.."0"..... ugh.
