The answer was Tosmah.

Name the two colts who won 2/3rds of the Triple Crown but didn't get an Eclipse Award as top 3yo.

What's this all about? Had you gone to page 2 .... Dec. 4, 2013 post at 10:45AM, you would've read ... the correct answer. ;)

ETA:
Right horse, wrong year. Citation in 1951. Noor won the race in 1950.

>In 1951, Citation became the first million-dollar-winning horse by winning his final start, the Hollywood Gold Cup.<

My guess would be Sir Barton and Seattle Slew.

Sir Barton because the races weren't considered the Triple Crown until long after he retired.

Seattle Slew because his sire died young.

I read a lot and like researching pedigrees. It was an educated guess. It came down to 3 horses in my mind, I had actually typed Sir Barton and Omaha, then I thought, oh wait Bold Reasoning died after only 3 crops.

What is the biggest impost a horse has carried and won at a distance of more than 12f in the at least 50yrs, in a major racetrack, and what was his name?

On the flat!

Forego is a good guess but not the horse that did that.
BTW I'm old,but not ancient! It was in the very early 80s in NY

Well I was banking on it being the Jockey Club Gold Cup, since it used to be 2 miles but was run at 12f in the 80s. I'll have to think more.
