I'd always heard the Travers Stakes referred to as "the Summer Derby." With that in mind I wondered, if we switched out the Spring for the Summer race, who the winners of a Preakness-Belmont-Travers...
Don't forget Australia's relative isolation. Now and then I'll catch a race or two when TVG carries a signal from Down Under but it's always at 1 o'Clock Friday or Saturday Night (U.S. East Coast...
The majority of American steeplechase races are on natural-landscape courses just as in Europe. But, of course, even these are run counterclockwise.
Three of the last five 2000 Guineas winners have come through the Galileo line:
2011 Frankel (son)
2013 Dawn Approach (g-son via 2008 placer New Approach)
2015 Gleneagles (son)
And at such short distances?
If North American racing had graded stakes races of two miles' distance as has any other continent with horseracing, then Feodor could be a stakes contender.
If only his owners would consider...
I reiterate: Impressive!
Aside from Busher, whom did War Admiral produce?
So pedigreequery tells us, that was either Shauna or Sir Z.

Really? Which horses did you ride, and when?
From what I recall reading, on her deathbed Lisa told Tim to look for her since she'd come back as a horse.
Ya think maybe ... ?
I quite agree. Four G1 wins in one year should get an automatic nod.
Then there was Big Tits.
That's what I like about European STB racing: they vary their distances.
19 horses going a mile and a half. Imagine that in North America!:rolleyes:
Assuming this hasn't already been posted, here's a New York Times article by Susanna Forrest recalling two horses in her life.
And Hollywood Park (remember that?)
He's more than earned it.
How is racing so different overseas?
I witnessed three Woodwards:
2007: I almost laughed watching Lawyer Ron take it in a tap dance.
2008: Once Curlin hit the afterburners on the far turn it was predictable (though I though he...
It's a shame that North American racing doesn't have graded stakes races longer than 12f (not counting the 'chases.) On every other continent there's a least one 2-mile race every week.
