Re: Travers 2019

Ah, good, thanks for posting that. I thought I had heard or read somewhere it was Tuesday for the draw, but couldn't find it anywhere, so decided I might have heard wrong and asked. I see that Spinoff didn't enter. Timing wrong for him, I guess, since he just ran 2 weeks ago. But waiting for the PA...

Nobody's mentioned Best Pal? Didn't he become a training partner/trainer's horse?
Yes, at Golden Eagle Farm.

Figured it might be a long shot. Am looking for a bunch of old halters to add to the collection.

Hoist the Flag
Count Fleet
Not so old- Tiznow and Captain Bodgit

If any ideas of where to find them, let me know!
I have a Miswaki halter.

Re: Standout Losing Efforts

Seattle Slew's performance in the '78 JCGC was remarkable and ranks #1 in this category.

An honorable mention goes to Swain in the '98 BC Classic. He ran sideways for the better part of the stretch and still managed to finish 3rd in what is arguably the best BBC field ever assembled.
