What is your favourite race of all time?
Mine would have to be the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 2011, just brilliant to watch Kauto Star and Denman fight it out for most of the straight and the Long Run to pounce on them. Just pure class!!View all 49 comments
2007 Melbourne Cup for mine..Efficient swooping down the outside...
And Efficients win a year earlier in the derby was breathtaking.
wow that lonhro race is insane!
I've looked everywhere for Efficients derby win but can't find it anywhere! Anyone know where I can find it?
Search YouTube b_Jones, the derby win is definitely on there, I've watched it a few times.
Super Impose's CoxPlate is definitely mine.
Rough Habits 1992 Stradbroke win has to be up there :)
Makybes Cox plate, when they all peeled out on the corner and were in one line before she blew them away.
the day lonhro ran down sunline in the yalumba stakes was great
The 1 Race that continues to stand out in my mind is KINGSTON TOWNS 3rd Cox plate as according to the caller,he was gone on the turn & could not win,but this mighty horse continued to come & Won the race on 3 legs....A TRUE CHAMPION of he's Time & i was proud to witness it as many new racegoers will be in the future witnessing BLACK CAVIER Today.
I'd probably have to go with Better Loosen Up's Japan Cup.......every time I watch that race I get goosebumps. Just watched it again. Bryan Martin's call was sensational " it's Ode, Cacoethes and Better Loosen Up in the middle.......Better Loosen Up's won for Australia. We've done it we've taken the Japan Cup with Better Loosen Up....."
Australia Stakes - Apache Cat
Might I add to my previous statement of Super Impose winning the Cox Plate that there is a tinge of sadness associated with that, as BLU would have won if not for the interference caused by Let's Elope - BLU was going home a touch better that Super. For many a year afterwards people kept on saying that BLU never won a race after returning from injury. He should have won that Cox Plate and been given the recognition he deserved as a Champion who overcame adversity. That run of God's Own rates a very close second and thanks for the reminder guys.
If any of you haven't watched the Qipco 2000 Guineas won be Frankel, I suggest you watch it now. Unbelievable!!!
Apache Cat and Takeover Target going stride for stride in the Winterbottom was a pearler of a battle.
blew em away! no wonder they're so excited bout that horse over there.
