Im so glad he won, just goes to show them that a horse doesnt have to cost over a million to be a champion. The owners of mine that bird only paid $9,500 for him.

quarter horses.....simply the best

reminds me of a lil famous horse sired by Man o'war..

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

^^ if you are thinking of Seabiscuit, he was not sired by Man o War. He was sired by Hardtack who was sired by Man o' War. his great rival of the time and the great race bettwen them was War Admiral, who was sired by Man o' War.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

i think allot of the credit for that victory goes to Calvin Bore. Another less skilled jockey would not have ran that race as well, with the same horse and same conditions.

Yes, of course! I forgot.

Phantom's lines interfered with my thinking.
