    I think at the Belmont all the other horses should give Smarty a buy in and walk. He deserves it, what a heart that horse has. That's what happens when you don't grow up as a prince with prime ground. Good footing just makes him fly whether it mud or sand.

    Snowbird, be careful of using that "bye" word - you might get CellosPride over here thinking he in some way will qualify for ADA protection! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    I can't believe I missed it! At least I knew right where to turn for an instant result--- the COTH boards.

    And I missed it for the best reason-- I was having a great ride and didn't want to get off.

    GO SMARTY!!!! A true triple crown prospect is just what we need to brighten these dismal times...

    I'm sure that you can catch it on the evening news or a sports update show. It really was a great race.

    lauriep,

    Do not jest about the ADA. I feel very strongly that Imperialism was NOT offered a reasonable accommodation for his sunken eye & plan to contest the outcome of the race.

    SQA.

    Nothing is worth having in the end if you haven't earned or fought for it ... so I hope that he encounters another solid field at Belmont.

    The last Grade I stakes win whereby only one horse raced (called a walk-over) was a "feat" in 1980 by the immortal racing legend Spectacular Bid who ironically like Smarty won the '79 Kentucky, Preakness and was the favorite for the Belmont.

    The race brought tears to my eyes today. It was wonderful! I think it's great how the Triple Crown races can bring all types and disciplines of horse people together.

    That was just awesome. I just loved watching that horse click through gears. He looked like he could've gone another mile. His ears were up and he looked like he was having the time of his life! It gave me chills. <span class="ev_code_BLUE">Just AWESOME!!</span>

    I was jumping up and down and screaming like a maniac as they came for home! It was so awesome, you could really just see him dig in and sail out in front of the competition. He made it look too easy!

    That was an absolutely thrilling race! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif It was almost as electrifying as being there in person, jumping up and down, screaming like a maniac, two in front of the television. I can only imagine what the neighbors must have thought as we were yelling, "Go Smarty go!"

    Great minds must think alike!

    I was thinking the EXACT same thing and looking down the posts to see if she made it here yet! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    Oh! Gimmerglass and LaurieP,I'm sorry I didn't think anyone would take me seriously. It was just the high of the moment watching that proud horse take on the world with his ears perked forward so pleased with himself, it just didn't seem there should be any issue.

    The way he lengthened his stride to prove there was no question who won. And I saw poor Lionheart with his ears pinned back knowing he couldn't catch him. That must have been quite a blast to his pride. Thoroughbreds are so proud and arrogant that accepting defeat must have shattered his self confidence.

    Should he be compelled to lose yet a third time?Just pass off my transgression as the enthusiasm of the moment and not based on logic or reasonable consideration.

    Oh, I knew you were not serious, Snowbird, but if you had been following the trainwreck of the Margie Engle thread, you would know why the word "bye" is pushing the buttons of a few of us! Hence, my two grins and a wink in my response. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif
