Hmmm...I am not sure; My toss up is between Phar Lap and Seabiscuit. Maybe that's because I'm a sucker for the ones who have come 'from behind' to become a champ...hahah...although, if Ruffian were thrown into the mix, now that would have been a race! Couple of awesome front runners, and a couple of come from behind greats? OMG! I'm not sure who I would bet on in that race! They were all fantastic!
