SHACKLEFORD winning the Met Mile by a nose over CALEB'S POSSE was one of my favorite races of the year.

Shackleford was one of my favorites in 2012, sad to see him go. The met mile was in my top 3 for the best race of the year.

It was so great to see the 9 year old Calidoscopio win the BC Marathon with an incredible turn of foot stretch run coming from last to first and become the oldest horse to win a BC race. It was almost a carbon copy of his "Win and you're in" race. Great stuff !

I have to admit he and beholder were my 2 top ideas for the whole bc.i just love long striding horses that are tough durable and can stay.calidoscopio reminds me of other great South American horses.my favorite was telescopico the argentine quadruple crown winner but there are many others that showed their value on our shores.siphon,sandpit,gentleman,invasor etc.

He was amazing! I looked at his pedigree--another amazing--no inbreeding for 5 generations. Ohhh do we need him in the US as a stud--unfortuately the breeders will probably take us down the same old path as usual--with the result of no triple crown winners, fragile horses, this last crop of 3 year old males was so decimated by injuries!

The Alysheba had the best field of the year and better then the Classic. Go take a look at the field.

Best Race of the Year: Tie in Travers @ Saratoga

The ARC was the best race as far as being a gut check down to the wire finish in a huge event. Slow time but time only counts in prison. Would like to see an American horse pointed to the ARC. It surpasses the BC Turf in my opinion.

I am so proud of horse racing fans that acknowledge the incredible nature of AK's 2nd place finish to Wise Dan. What a beautiful horse, with so much potential. Incredible adversity this horse has faced and he just keeps showing up. Not to mention, that race was against arguable the 2nd best horse in the world right now, he got a horrible trip, and he would have won had the race been another 1/16th longer. Cheering for AK to have a big year. Hope he makes it to Dubai and moreover, I hope we see him in the classic next year or a rematch against WD.
