Came to respect his accomplishments after I got over him defeating Funny Cide! He was one of the most appropriately named horses as the grand sire of racing royalty, Triple Crown winner American Pharoah. RIP

I remember that he lost training time before the Derby because of a foot bruise.I always believed that he would have won the triple crown if he had stayed 100%.

I do remember that. You are probably right. Still I loved the “gutsy gelding”!
