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!

Just a guess as I really have no idea (nor do I have any idea how old you are), Forego?

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
Good try tho!!

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.
