The HORSE list comes out on Friday, guaranteed to be controversial!
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

P Val should have made a list for sure :shock:
Always remember Chris McCarron's ride on Touch Gold in the Belmont - one for the ages
Followed David Hofmans instructions to a "t" otherwise Silver Charm would have won for sure
No one has ever bet enough on a winning horse.

Maybe a few here would like to list their top 5 and see how it compares come Friday with the "experts"

I'm pretty sure Secretariat, Man 'O War, Spectacular Bid, Citation and Dr. Fager will be in the top 10, if not comprising the Top 5. ;)

Going with the past 50 years I would rank them:

1) Secretariat
2) Seattle Slew
3) Affirmed
4) Spectacular Bid
5) American Pharoah

Dr. Fager, what have you done for me lately? :lol: :D

Four championships in one year and a world record, carrying 134 pounds (!), that still stands. . . to note a couple of his achievements. . .

Oops...I missed that 'Last 50 Years' qualifier, so no Man 'O War...or Citation, either, I guess. :oops:
So...Secretariat, Spectacular Bid, Seattle Slew, Dr. Fager and Affirmed?

I think Dr. Fager falls outside the 50-year mark. I definitely would have included him otherwise.

His 3- and 4-year old season (67-68) weren't too shabby. . .

Or is DOB the definition of "last 50 years"?

Champion Sprinter, 1967.
Horse of the Year, Champion Handicap Horse, Champion Turf Horse, and Champion Sprinter, 1968

Won the Vosburgh in Nov 1968 so I think he'll be included.
