Game horses don't quit.

by Bob Fox

After a grueling half mile in 43:4, each horse keeps going resulting in a Dead Heat.

Lure became a remarkable Miler on the Grass. There was no need to test Devil His Due again in the Wood Memorial Stakes which Devil His Due won. These days horses would get a very long break after a race like that 1992 Gotham Stakes.

The rest is racing history in the careers of two extraordinary warriors of our sport.

1974 Preakness

by Bob Fox

Little Current comes from last to first getting through along the rail to give Darby Dan Farm a Preakness victory. John Galbreath won all three Triple Crown Races, The Epsom Derby, the Breeders Cup Classic and the World Series with his Pittsburgh Pirates.

Darby Dan Farm was one of racing's dynasties back in the day. The share I bought in Little Current was my first big stallion share purchase and my relationship with Darby Dan Farm was life changing for me. I fondly remember my time spent Olin Gentry, a true mentor for me.
