  • Caliente Railbird

    It’s gonna come down to match between Secretariat and Man ‘O War….

  • Bristling

    WOW has does Cigar beat Native Dancer ? The horse was only narrowly beaten once.

  • Tinky

    (20/1) Zenyatta vs. Dr. Fager (1/20)

  • MDW

    At what distance is this race to be run?  What weights are to be carried?  Do the gals get the customary wieght concessions?

  • It’s about your “favorite” Thoroughbred, not the “best” so those factors don’t matter here
