Somebeachsomewhere Last Race Ever Tonight!

The top race horse in the world right now, Somebeachsomewhere, is going to race tonight for the last time ever! He's won 19 out of 20 races (losing that one race by a whisker). He currently ties the world record for fastest mile and has over $3million in earnings. He'll be racing in race 9, post position 3. Race starts at approx. 9:40 New Jersey time (sorry I don't even know what time that is in my timezone yet!). Don't miss it!!

He won! Not only did he win, but they said they're going to race him one last time on Dec 15 (plus an elimination heat on Dec 8).

Watch it here!!:

USTA Cyber Circuit Series sponsored by RaceReplays.com

For those who don't know, the first time (ie 54.3) is the time combined (ie first and second quarter) and the time in brackets is the time that quarter alone went in. The time goes minutes:seconds:fifth of a second.

First 1/4: 27.0
Second 1/4: 54.3 (27.3)
Third 1/4: 1:22.0 (27.2)
Last 1/4: 1:48.3 (26.3)

Wow, Just WOW! Thanks so much for the link. I worked with StdB's in the past and that was just fantastic. He never had a challenger.

I wonder how fast he really is. He was never even asked for speed. Cool.
Thank You!

I wish they would keep racing him next year though. I think he'd be more of a champion horse if he could keep winning against older horses. If horses raced more than two years more outsiders would be interested in the sport. Instead of having to learn all about new horses every year or losing interest after a local horse stops being in the spotlight, they could follow the horse throughout a longer career. This comes from first hand experience (I'm from Beach's homeland - Truro, NS!!)

Anyway, that aside, GO BEACH GO! He's in the second elimination race of two, post position 4. Can't wait to have another Beach party lol

I use to train and race standardbreds...watching this makes me miss it.

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
